A basic workplace occupational health (OH) service includes:
- a company doctor and/or nurse with specialist occupational health training, supported by administrative staff;
- an on-site treatment room and other facilities;
- specialist support, which may be on-site or contracted out (specialists may include physiotherapists, counsellors or occupational hygienists responsible for monitoring and controlling environmental hazards, such as chemicals and air quality);
- subsidised subscriptions to a healthcare cash plan, for example, covering dental and optical care; and
- an employee assistance programme (EAP). These cover around two million workers in Britain and include a telephone helpline, access to counselling, and advice on personal and work-related issues. Some EAPs provide family cover.
