» Back to listing New online guidance aims to make it easier to understand health surveillance

8th April 2013

New online guidance has been launched to make it easier for employers to understand what they need to do to check and protect their workers' health.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published new guidelines on health surveillance, which may be needed if there is a risk that workers could be exposed to chemicals or other hazardous substances likely to harm their health.

Developed with industry, the clear and simple guidance aims to make it easier for employers to decide whether their workers need health surveillance, how to go about it and how to use the results. The guidance also makes it clearer when action is not needed, saving lower-risk businesses, such as those that are office- based, from wasting time and money.

The new online guidance replaces HSG61 "Health Surveillance at Work". It can be found online at http://www.hse.gov.uk/health-surveillance/index.htm?eban=govdel-coshh&cr=18-Mar-2013
