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 and hypertension.
  • 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.

Off-site clinics
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.
