Sickness Absence Management

OH Protect can help you reduce the disruption, loss of productivity and general management time wasted dealing with sickness absence issues.  We can help to facilitate the much faster return-to-work of your employees after a spell of sickness absence than otherwise would be the case if things were left to run their own course.  The early intervention of one of our highly experience Occupational Health professionals, be it an Occupational Health Adviser or an Occupational Health Physician, can produce rapid results.

A sickness absence referral can lead in many directions such as:

  • Advice to employees on what they should be asking their own GP
  • Helping engage other appropriate NHS/GP services
  • Identification of real cause of the sickness absence so the route cause can be tackled
  • Suggest onward private consultation to other health professionals such as a physiotherapist or counsellor
  • Identify what reasonable adjustments can be made at work to allow the person to return in some capacity
  • Coordinating the employee rehabilitation programme
  • Devising and monitoring a return-to-work programme, phased return or similar
