We are delighted to have been awarded quality accreditation from occupational health standard SEQOHS, reinforcing the care excellence our OH teams are delivering within such a challenging occupational health landscape.
SEQOHS represents a quality mark demonstrating that accredited OH services provide safe, effective, quality OH care for workers in both the public and private sectors. Managed by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) it provides independent and impartial recognition that an occupational health service provider has objectively demonstrated their competence to a team of trained assessors.
In response to our application, the SEQOHS assessors commented that, “BHSF has a well-run occupational business, clearly focused on delivering a good quality service to their clients. BHSF has demonstrated throughout the assessment process a real commitment to the personal and professional development of the team, an essential component in facilitating high-quality service delivery.”
The Assessors were also particularly impressed with the depth and quality of our clinical audits and how the results are used to drive continuous improvement.
Fiona McGill, clinical lead at BHSF:
“We are thrilled to have received this official recognition from SEQOHS assessors. Acknowledging the hard work that our teams have put in to respond to another challenging pandemic year is especially rewarding, as too is the recognition of just how we invest in our people.”
Adverse events have of course been a firm fixture for every workplace since March 2020. In a typical year, we are out on the road delivering health assessments and screening across a variety of workplace settings. But in these atypical times, we’ve had to evolve. Contact-free delivery has become so vital to many business sectors, so that is exactly what we mirrored with our screening services, adapting to help ensure continuity at a time when so much has been uncertain.
The BHSF occupational health team provides a range of occupational health support services including new-starter health screenings, role specific medicals, immunisations and vaccinations, health surveillance and sickness absence referrals.
We also offer additional services, including ergonomic, physiotherapy and mental health support. Early intervention into absence management to tackle mental health issues employees may be facing early on can have a significant impact on the emotional and financial cost of workplace absenteeism.
Fiona McGill, clinical lead at BHSF added: “We are thrilled to have received this official recognition from SEQOHS assessors. Acknowledging the hard work that our teams have put in to respond to another challenging pandemic year is especially rewarding, as too is the recognition of just how we invest in our people.
“We are a caring and supportive company, with a simple viewpoint that we need to look after our team as best we can; so they can look after our clients as best they can. Fully understanding customers’ needs and offering insightful solutions comes from a place of knowledge and expertise. We value trust and opportunity, providing an agile workplace where our people can achieve and fulfil their potential.
“In fact, it is a great time to join the BHSF team; we have already this year taken on another cohort of trainees to our OH Academy and we are also actively recruiting for Occupational Health Advisors (OHAs) looking to take the next steps in a career in health management.
“Creating robust partnerships with our clients is key, based on the precise needs of their teams and operational structures, all tailored in response to the specific constraints of the COVID-era. We have expertise in under-strain sectors including logistics, manufacturing and engineering, along with specialised knowledge for those working in the oil, gas and rail industries.”
