Many organisations approach us to discuss their responsibilities in relation to the Disability Discrimination Act - (DDA).
We would advise that by having a comprehensive pre-placement screening programme you should be able to address potential issues and comply with relevant legislation; we strongly advise organisations to utilise this facility.
The cost of recruitment is estimated at an average of £2000 per candidate, for 1.5% of that cost you could have expert advice on suitability, fitness and required adjustments or adaptations.
Can you afford not to:
Establish the personal, physical and psychological capability of the prospective employee to undertake the work offered – ensuring the candidate is suited to the role ?
Identify health problems that will require on-going advice and/or management ?
Pre-placement health screening will require the completion of a health questionnaire by both the applicant and HR professional. As a result of scrutiny, the occupational health advisor may require further action such as:
Placement Health Interview
Medical examination by appointed Physician
Report from a General Practitioner
Further information efficiently communicated by Human Resources
Reducing the risk of ill health and litigation
Our risk management systems are designed to help you take appropriate and effective interest in employees’ health in order to improve performance and reduce the risk of work related ill health and litigation.
We will be happy to advise you on priorities for your business.
