Workers Health Ltd is proud to announce we have achieved the SEQOHS accreditation from the Faculty of Occupational Medicine.
This means we are independently audited and fully accredited to the highest standards of quality assurance in occupational health, following a rigorous accreditation process.
SEQOHS stands for Safe Effective Quality Occupational Health Services and the accreditation scheme is a stand-alone scheme managed by the Royal College of Physicians of London who manage the process on behalf of the Faculty of Occupational
The SEQOHS organisation, in accrediting Occupational Health services, seeks to formally recognise that an OH service has demonstrated it has a competence to deliver against the measures in the SEQOHS standards.
It is a workforce-focused scheme based on the principal of independent assessment against recognised standards. The scheme was developed for all OH services and providers across the UK in both the NHS and independent sector.
As a provider to the construction industry Workers Health Ltd have been additionally assessed against construction industry standards.
SEQOHS aims to:
1) Enable services to identify the standards of practice to which they should aspire
2) Credit good work being done by high quality Occupational Health services, providing
independent validation that they satisfy standards of quality
3) Raise standards where they need to be raised
4) Help purchasers differentiate Occupational Health services which attain the desired
standards from those who do not.
Workers Health have created and updated OH policies and protocols in addition to critically examining and modifying the way we undertake tasks to ensure compliance with current best practice.
SEQOHS accreditation is the nationally recognised standard for OH companies across the country.

“… attention is drawn to SEQOHS15 (Safe Effective Quality
Occupational Health Service). It sets out a set of standards and a process of
voluntary accreditation that aims to help to raise the overall standard of care provided
by occupational health service providers. It is not a requirement of theses guidelines
for providers to be accredited under this scheme. However, where occupational
health provision for medical fitness assessments is outsourced, it could provide help
in assessing the suitability and competence of providers. The website includes advice
on employer’s responsibilities when selecting and occupational health service.”
