Fitness to Work

Fitness to work assessments can assist your company to manage employees with capability to work concerns. Employees may report to their company that they have a problem with their health which is causing difficulties in their ability to perform their normal job role or when there are health issues which may create safety issues in the course of their work.

If an employee is not suitable for the work they do, then there is the risk of future ill health and absence with all the additional costs these place on a business. And that’s without considering the knock on effects on insurance premiums and potential litigation.

Pegasus Occupational Health can meet with the employee on a confidential basis and independently discuss the effect their health may have on their ability to perform their role or conversely the potential effect their role may impact on their health. Whether an employee wants to return to work after sick leave, is claiming that she or he is too sick to work or you do not believe they are well enough to continue  to work, we can help.
