Dudley MBC has a requirement for the provision of a comprehensive and highly integrated range of Occupational Health Service (OHS) to enable the Council to meet its common law and statutory duties of care for the health, safety and welfare of its employees in their working environment.
The aim is to secure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical and mental well-being of the Council’s employees during their employment.
As the largest employer in the local economy, the Council has a responsibility and a commitment to be an exemplary employee with regard to the health of its staff. The Council therefore understands the importance of promoting good health in the workplace and the role of effective Occupational Health provision in achieving that aim.
An essential feature to the success of the Occupational Health Service is the confidence which employees and managers will have in it. Developing a Corporate and integrated approach requires Occupational Health to work closely with a range of services across the Council and with line managers and the employees themselves. Its practitioners must address a wider remit and embrace closer working with public health, general practice and vocational rehabilitation in meeting the needs of the Council’s employees. This will be underpinned by excellent operational relationships and good quality data and analysis.
