Safe Effective Quality Occupational Health Service
We are pleased to announce that in 2013 we were the first private Occupational Health Company in Wales to be accredited for the new Quality Award for OH providers. The SEQOHS Accreditation Scheme ensures, through regular monitoring, that required standards are maintained by all accredited OH Services. Assessment is against the SEQOHS Standards, which were developed by the Faculty of Occupational Medicine in collaboration with a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary stakeholder group. A rigorous audit is carried out every year against the standards. Source : seqohs.org All Companies are measured and audited against the following standards
