Occupational Health Overview
An integrated approach to the management of the health and wellbeing of employees has been developed by the ENA Occupational Health Committee. A Health and Wellbeing Framework provides the basis for the assessment of risks to health in the workplace, leading to a programme of continuous improvement in health performance. A set of agreed protocols provides guidance covering the requirements for minimum legal compliance through to the application of best practice procedures.
The Framework is supported by all Member Companies and has been designed to assist in both the management of workplace health risks and to promote the health and wellbeing of employees.
The Framework also contributes to the implementation of the electricity industry's five year health and safety strategy, Powering Improvement, which supports the priorities of the HSE strategy. The focus for 2011 is on occupational health and wellbeing, and the industry has adopted a series of Commitments designed to increase awareness of occupational health risks and outline the approaches to the successful management of those risks.
