‘Health and medical surveillance and safety critical medicals¬†

Guidance for occupational health providers, appointed doctors and employers during the coronavirus outbreak

In the light of advice from Public Health England (PHE) on COVID-19, HSE issued guidance on 20 March 2020, setting out a proportionate and flexible approach to enable health and medical surveillance to continue. This advice updates that guidance. It continues to balance the need to protect the health, safety and welfare of workers and the current constraints presented by the coronavirus outbreak. HSE will continue to review this guidance as appropriate (last updated 18 June 2020).

This guidance outlines a framework for how you can conduct health/medical surveillance and safety critical medicals remotely. It does not prevent you from carrying out face to face medical assessments where you have carried out a suitable and sufficient risk assessment and put in place appropriate controls, taking into account PHE advice on coronavirus. ‘
