Frequently Asked Questions

What is health surveillance ?

Health Surveillance is a statutory requirement and is determined by the Company Risk Assessments. E.g. Employees exposed to noise, vibration, solvents, fumes, dusts etc. will require specific and regular tests.

What is the difference between health surveillance and medical surveillance?

Both are statutory requirements determined by Company Risk Assessments. However, Health Surveillance can be completed by a Nurse or a Technician, whereas Medical Surveillance must be completed by a Physician who is on the HSE Register.

Can an employee refuse to attend a Statutory Health Surveillance appointment?

The need for Health Surveillance comes from Risk assessments and legal requirements. It is not a “nice to have” or an optional extra. Therefore, a refusal to attend should be treated exactly the same as refusing to attend mandatory Safety training or wearing PPE.
