Implementation and operation
Life Occupational Health takes full responsibility for the staffing and management
of your clinic, the day-to-day delivery of care and ongoing operations. An on-site
primary care service is by far the most cost-effective way of managing employees'
basic healthcare needs. Because care is close at hand, employees who cannot afford
medical aid do not have to travel far to primary health clinics and wait in long
queues for minor treatment. Time off work is reduced and early identification of
conditions leads to the possible reversal of chronic illness.
Primary healthcare services
Our primary healthcare services include the following:
- Diagnosis and treatment of injuries and minor ailments.
- Co-ordination of health education programmes such as Aids awareness, lifestyle management
and family planning.
- Individual counselling.
- Regular monitoring and treatment of employees with chronic illnesses such as diabetes
- Managed referral systems.
Mobile on-site occupational health services
Life Occupational Health’s mobile service makes it convenient and easy for smaller
companies to provide professional and cost-effective on-site occupational healthcare
to their employees. Although many companies do have on-site medical services they
do not always have the necessary equipment to perform certain required screening
tests, for example audiometric, lung function and vision screening.
To meet the needs for medical surveillance and other healthcare requirements of
smaller industries, in cases where it would not be cost effective to have an on-site
clinic, Life Occupational Health has established off-site facilities in several
areas where companies can send their employees for healthcare services.
