Occupational Health - UK - April 2016
“There are approximately 450,000 new cases of occupational ill health in the UK every year, but the costs of managing ill-health at an individual corporate level remain poorly measured and unclear. Active marketing of OH, coupled with evidence-based proposals for cost-effective interventions, will be required if the market is to make a serious impact in healthcare.”
– Lewis Cone, B2B Analyst

This report covers the UK occupational health market. Occupational health is defined as healthcare provision provided in the workplace, and includes both specific health and safety care, and broader issues of health, fitness and preventative health care, often referred to as wellness. There remains much debate and confusion over the precise definition of occupational healthcare, and the boundaries of the sector remain vague. According to the joint International Labour Organisation/World Health Organisation Committee on Occupational Health, occupational healthcare is aimed at the following:
“The promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental and social wellbeing of workers in all occupations; the prevention amongst workers of departures from health caused by their working conditions; the protection of workers in their employment from risks resulting from factors adverse to health; and the placing and maintenance of the worker in an occupational environment adapted to his/her physiological and psychological capabilities.”
