Occupational Health Screenings
Occupational Health Screenings (OHS) are necessary to determine the ability of employees to perform their duties. It is important for staff members to carry out a health check, either before beginning a new role or getting back to work after a long time off.
What is OHS?
An occupational health screening refers to health checks needed by a worker. It’s used to reduce and prevent work-related injuries.
Most times, the screening can determine if an employee is well-suited for a task. For instance, job responsibilities that involve physical abilities such as heavy lifting, will need such screening.
These screenings can also detect pre-existing conditions, which can make a worker more susceptible to the effects of dangerous substances or other risks. An employee may require health screenings at different stages. Generally, these checks are necessary for the following purposes:
- Establish that employees can meet the physical needs of the job before an assignment
- Monitor the health status of workers periodically when the job exposes them to health hazards
- Know if employees can return to work after a long absence
- Determine the conditions under which workers with illnesses, injuries, or disabilities can keep on working

Remote medical support
For organizations that conduct business in hostile environments or high-risk industries, occupational hazards, and ensuing medical emergencies are a reality that can become immensely costly – financially, psychologically, and physically – if left unattended.
Often, such organizations are physically distant from advanced medical facilities and treatment options, which increase the fatality rate of even simpler cases.

Employee Assistance Program
Through the “FI Employee Assistance Program,” FI aims to bridge the imbalance between professional and personal lives of today’s stressed employees. And promoting a highly efficient and peaceful business environment for both employees and employers.
The 21st Century society has taken manufacturing and service sectors to unprecedented levels. Although employees attempt to keep their professional and personal lives separate, it is increasingly difficult to prevent interactions.
Everybody is dealing with responsibilities in life and the workplace in his/her ways. The tension that arises from trying to balance these two different spheres, negatively affects the efficiency of each person. Complaints concerning ‘harmony and communication’ and ‘stress and depression’ in the workplace have dramatically increased.
At FI Employee Assistance Program, we focus on the professional sphere. The program consists of a set of services for individuals and institutions. The goal is to improve the work performance of employees through determining their problems, providing them with solutions, and increasing their satisfaction and productivity in the workplace.
You may contact FI and request face-to-face, over-the-phone, or e-mail assistance. If required, your identity can be kept anonymous.
