HEALTHWORK delighted to become first occupational health organisation to gain SEQOHS accreditation

Healthwork, a UK wide occupational health and safety provider, is delighted to be awarded the first accreditation (on 13 May 2011) under the Royal College of Physicians/Faculty of Occupational Medicine SEQOHS scheme.

 
May 14, 2011 - PRLog -- Following the recent assessment, under the SEQOHS (Safe, effective, quality occupational health services) scheme, Healthwork has become the first occupational health organisation to be awarded accreditation.  

The Manchester, UK based company is a national provider of occupational health and safety services.  Healthwork (www.healthworkltd.com) provides a variety of corporate medical and occupational health services including pre-placement health assessments, fitness for work medicals, statutory medicals (including Asbestos, Lead, Ionising Radiation and vibration medicals), off-shore medicals, executive medicals, assessments for pension schemes, health surveillance solutions, physiotherapy services, counselling services, training, and workplace audits and surveys.  

With an emphasis on safety, quality and innovation, Healthwork provides occupational health and safety services to a variety of public and private sector  organisations in the UK.

The SEQOHS (Safe, Effective, Quality, Occupational health Services) Accreditation Scheme is a stand-alone scheme managed by the Royal College of Physicians of London on behalf of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine.  The aim of the SEQOHS Accreditation Scheme is to ensure, through regular monitoring, that required quality standards are maintained by accredited OH Services. Assessment for accreditation is against the SEQOHS Standards, which were developed by the Faculty of Occupational Medicine in collaboration with a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary stakeholder group.

The SEQOHS scheme was launched in December 2010, and more than 100 organisations have applied to be accredited.

Healthwork was the first organisation to be assessed, and the assessment visit took place in Manchester on 13 May 2011 at the Healthwork offices.  After a thorough assessment, the assessors awarded Healthwork full accreditation for a period of 5 years.  

The assessors congratulated Healthwork on the quality and robustness of the systems and processes in place, and commented that Healthwork has 'excellent documents overall that exceed the minimum standard'.  Healthwork was described by the assessors as 'a well led and managed service'.  Healthwork met all of the SEQOHS minimum standards and the assessors commented that Healthwork often exceeded the minimum service describing Healthwork as an exemplar service.  

"As a quality provider of occupational health services, Healthwork is delighted to be the first occupational health organisation to be awarded accreditation under the SEQOHS scheme, and the award confirms and highlights our commitment to quality occupational health service provision" commented Dr Tok Hussain, Operations Director of Healthwork.  "The SEQOHS scheme aims to raise the overall standard of care provided by occupational health services in the United Kingdom, and we are happy to be involved in the scheme"
