H2. Occupational Health Standards

Submitted: 20 October, 2014
The MOD has met this pledge by ensuring that the Department’s Occupational Health provider is accredited to meet new occupational health standards. The Occupational Health contract was renewed in 2013 and the provider, OH Assist, has achieved this accreditation.
The Occupational Health service provided for MOD by OH Assist offers a range of accessible services that are available to employees and line managers seeking to support their staff and ensure that the Department meets its legislative requirements and responsibilities.
The service and the performance of the contract will be periodically reviewed to ensure that the standard of support and advice is maintained. In addition, the Department will be conducting its own survey of staff using the Occupational Health service to assess where improvements can be made.
