  • Health Services
    • The Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999(HSE 2000) requires all employers (including those who are self-employed) to assess risks arising from their work not only to themselves and their employees, but also to the general public. Risks may come from contact with certain chemicals or physical agents, or they may be ergonomic. Equally, employees are required to carry out appropriate health surveillance on employers who may pose risks.
      This legislation aims to protect the health of employees by early detection of adverse changes that may be caused by hazardous substances. Health Surveillance also helps to evaluate existing both control measures and hazards by collecting, maintaining, updating and using the data collected. Arumas Health Services supports employers by carrying out these required examinations of the employees’ work activities and then giving the appropriate advice and support. We perform examinations such as VDU, audiometry, spirometer testing and more.
  • Employment Medical Assessments
    • Arumas Health Services conducts comprehensive health screenings, making relevant recommendations, adjustments and/or restrictions needed for individuals to undertake a proposed job role.

      Employers may be faced with an employee or prospective employee with a health problem. This may be evident at recruitment, change of job or returning to work after illness or injury.
