Under the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) 1974, employers, employees and the self-employed have:
“specific duties to protect, so far as reasonably practicable, those at work and others who may be affected by their work activity, such as contractors, visitors and patients. Central to health and safety legislation is the need for employers to assess the risks to staff and others”
As part of your Pre-employment checks your vaccinations record will be checked by Occupational Health, and the requirement for specific vacations and/or blood tests will be assessed. This is in order to protect you as a healthcare worker and the patients from communicable diseases.
If the requirement for a vaccination and/or blood test has been identified, you will be invited to attend our service to receive them.
It is vital that your health and the health of our patients and service users are protected by ensuring that your immunity status is up to date.
Immunisation of healthcare and laboratory workers helps:
If you require a copy of your immunisation history from the Occupational Health Service please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org , including the following information:
