This medical assessment is performed by our GMC Registered and HSE Appointed Doctors at Just Health clinics.
The frequency of monitoring can vary based on your current blood levels, gender, age, previous exposure and level of exposure to lead. Recommendations can vary from 2 weeks to 12monthly.
An Appointed doctor is a registered medical practitioner appointed by the HSE to undertake statutory medical surveillance. The HSE is responsible for the following regulations where medical surveillance conducted by an Appointed doctor may be required. You have a legal duty to ensure your employees are under periodic medical supervision if they work with specified hazards under certain conditions.
The purpose of statutory medical surveillance is to alert your employees to early signs of potential health problems caused by the work they are doing, and provide advice on whether further exposure to the particular hazard is appropriate. The Appointed doctor should make an employer aware of any emerging issues so the employer reviews the risk assessment as appropriate, to ensure risks to your employees’ health are properly controlled.
