Please describe the programme you have in place:
We have adopted an occupational health strategy the key aims of which are to:
*ensure safety critical workers are fit for work;
*prevent work-related cancers and other chronic ill-health conditions caused or made worse by work;
*promote well-being and health lifestyles while recognising that this remains a matter of personal choice;
*mitigate the impact of cardiac arrest at work.
At the core of the strategy is a commitment for all contract management plans to contain an occupational health section which sets out the arrangements, as appropriate, for:
*identification of key health risks and arrangements for their management. There is a strategic focus on preventing and controlling exposures to carcinogens;
*access to occupational health services including facilitation of supply chain access to those services. In the UK our occupational health provider is accredited to SEQOHS;
*access to local primary health care;
*on-site medical facilities;
*identification and screening of safety critical workers;
*face-fit testing for RPE; and
*management of fatigue.
We have developed and delivered training for our managers to raise their awareness of key health risks and of our strategy.
We are working with our occupational health provider to facilitate access for our supply chain to their occupational health services. We are working to increase the involvement of our supply chain in activities such as health promotion.
In 2015 we launched a Stress and Mental Health Charter which underpins our commitment to creating a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of our employees. The charter is accompanied by guidance which provides a framework of available tools to support the reduction of ill health caused by stress and a detailed stress awareness training module.
We also publicly report on health matters in the Health & Safety section of our Annual Sustainability report - http://www.carillionplc.com/sustainability/sustainability-policies-and-reports.aspx
