EEF Occupational Health will be running clinics for member companies at EEF locations across the country and throughout the year.
The clinics are staffed by OH professionals, who can deliver a complete range of services, including statutory health surveillance, health screening, medicals and absence management assessments and referrals.
Individual tests include audiometry (hearing tests), HAVS (hand/arm vibration), spirometry (lung function), skin health surveillance and bio-monitoring, e.g. lead, chrome, isocyanates.
We also offer executive health assessments and other specialist medicals, like fork-lift truck drivers, working at height, confined space and travel medicals. We manage sickness absence medical referrals, return to work assessments, adjustments under the Equality Act, physiotherapy and employee rehabilitation programmes. See our website www.eefohs.co.uk for a complete list.
EEF Occupational Health focuses almost exclusively on the manufacturing, distribution, engineering and technology sectors, and has been delivering its services for over 25 years.
There is a free national helpline for EEF members. A duty OH clinician is on hand to give advice and guidance on all occupational health matters on 0844 800 9264
EEF Southwest’s Annual Summer Dinner is back due to popular demand. This year’s event will see a number of senior decision makers from the Manufacturing and Engineering Sector gather for an evening of business networking, entertainment and good food.

Achieving award winning operational efficiency
This Member Connect event demonstrates how businesses can drive and sustain a culture of operational efficiency to achieve outstanding performance and competitiveness.
Hear from award winning engineering and technology business Siemens about their inspiring journey of efficiency.
Accolades from this multi-award winning facility include European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) Excellence awards, the Enworks Environmental Efficiency Award Runners up and the Siemens worldwide award for Environmental Management. Siemens in Congleton were also recently appointed Number 1 factory in the Drives Technology division.
This event also includes a site tour.
The use of social media has blurred the lines between work and home, and has made public what was once private. Employee usage of social media presents new and significant challenges for employers. What if disparaging information about an organisation is being posted by an employee? What if photos are posted online of an employee wearing their staff uniform in a situation that puts an organisation’s reputation at risk? What if employees start ridiculing an unpopular colleague on Facebook?
This event aims to help employers understand their rights, make sense of the emerging case law and equip them with the tools and information to help them regulate what employees are saying online.
We will also be looking at how to stay within the law when using social media as an effective recruitment tool, how to protect business connections and confidential information in the modern world of social media and what counts as a suitable LinkedIn profile.
This event is an updated version of a successful event we ran in Winter 2011. We will be following the same agenda and revisiting the same case studies, but everything will be fully updated to reflect the latest caselaw and thinking.
