Summary

Work-related illness and injury is costing organisations in the UK up to £18 billion per year. As employers have statutory duties under both the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 with regard to occupational health, it is essential that they are aware of their duties and the legal requirements.

Tolley’s Guide to Managing Employee Health is designed for all those responsible for managing the health of employees and gives comprehensive guidance on how to set up and manage an employee health strategy. It clarifies the duties outlined by law so the employer can feel confident they are complying with the latest legislation.

It includes comprehensive guidance on how to manage the risk to employee health in your organization and, more specifically, how to conduct risk assessments.

Also covered are topical issues such as:
* Sick Building Syndrome
* Alcohol and Drugs
* Asbestos
* Stress
* Violence in the Workplace
* RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury)
* Legionellosis

Guidance on sensitive issues such as long-term sickness and unauthorized workplace absence are also addressed, enabling the manager to act with confidence.

Each chapter includes a full discussion on the subject matter in hand, complete with relevant checklists so you can ensure that your own employee health strategy is being monitored and managed in the most effective way, whilst always complying with the law.
