Cpl Occupational Healthcare
Delivering specialist health services to public and private workplaces
Cpl Occupational Healthcare
Launched in 2011, Cpl Occupational Healthcare delivers specialist health services to public and private workplaces. We are concerned with the effects of work on health and of health on work. As your employees are your most important asset, our focus is to provide you with a service that will create an environment which allows for the highest degree of wellbeing for your employees. It’s an insightful and worthy investment as the healthier your workforce, the greater your productivity.
Our advocacy of wellbeing is primarily a proactive approach, through preventative measures which is the cornerstone to keeping your employees healthy and productive.
We offer a measured and controlled approach through appropriate programmes which are tailored to meet the needs of your workforce.
We can determine and provide the appropriate levels of medical assessment which may be required for various job positions.
Our Occupational Health programmes
Pre-employment medicals (PEM’s) are carried out to allow candidates to be screened for medical conditions that may affect their ability to perform the tasks in their job. If medical conditions are discovered controls are advised which ensures the candidate is not likely to be adversely affected by their specific work-related tasks. PEM’s assessments will be carried out under the direction of our accredited Specialists in Occupational Medicine.
A proactive approach to sickness absence which focuses on early intervention will have positive benefits for both employees and management. Controlling sickness absence through ongoing medical assessments allows for:
- Assessment of long term absent cases
- Assessment of repeated short-term cases of absenteeism
- Early intervention
- Early return to work through effective rehabilitation and retention. Effective rehabilitation and retention not only foster a timely and healthy return to work, it also allows the employee who develops health problems remain in work for as long as possible.
The cost of not managing sickness absence results in:
- Increased absenteeism
- Reduced productivity and performance
- Financial loss (Staff replacement, training)
- Decreased morale (increased workload for colleagues)
Our aim in Cpl Occupational Health is to ensure the ongoing health and well-being of employees who may be exposed to identified occupational hazards, through the nature of their work. This can be either on a one to one basis or as part of a wider Health Surveillance (HS) programme. Once hazards have been identified a Health Surveillance programme is implemented to ensure the continued safety and well- being of the employees.=
Employee education and training is incorporated in the programme to create awareness regarding the hazards and the impact on health effects. Employees are trained and educated on various work-related topics such as Personal Protective Equipment. Risk assessments are used to identify the need for Health Surveillance and should not be used as a substitute for undertaking a risk assessment.
Our team are there to offer advice and relevant health education to clients regarding any occupational hazards or concerns in relation to the employee’s role including the appropriate workplace immunisations.
Our team are in the position to provide on or off-site immunisation depending on requirements. We are adept at managing staff immunisation programmes and have vast experience in initiating both new programmes and the delivery of mass immunisation programmes. We have successfully sourced vaccines – even in times of shortage – and we have both the medical and non-medical staffing requirements needed to deliver such projects.
A health screening programme is beneficial for employers as it gives an indication of the overall health of your employee population. Health Screenings are a proactive approach in detecting the early onset of disease before symptoms develop. We provide a detailed analysis allowing you to develop work place wellbeing programmes tailored to your employees.

- Health & lifestyle questionnaires
- Blood Pressure
- BMI & Waist
- Cholesterol & Triglycerides
- Glucose or Glycated Haemoglobin
- Full Blood Count
- Renal Profile
- Liver Function Tests

The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that 71% of deaths globally in 2018 were due to non-communicable diseases. These non-communicable diseases comprised mainly of cardiovascular disease (44%), cancers (22%) chronic respiratory disease (9%) and diabetes (3.9%). These major non-communicable diseases share four behavioural risk factors: tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol. Detection, screening and treatment of non-communicable disease are keys components of the response to non-communicable diseases.
It’s worth bearing these four key lifestyle factors when reviewing your overall health screening report and deciding on appropriate initiatives. Cpl OH will tailor employee wellbeing campaigns to your requirements including:
