Wright Engineering has introduced Mediright professional services that include an On-Site Health Screening service. Professional RGN nurses dedicate their time and expertise to all of a company's employee's. The result, says Mediright, is a reduction in absenteeism, which in turn will repay any cost many times over.

The services are designed to make a workplace safer, reduce accidents and help guard against future litigation. In many cases reduced insurance premiums are also achieved. Providing in-house access to medical advice and services sends a strong message to staff, that you care about their well being.

Mediright lets you demonstrate how you have met obligations to monitor the health of employees as a means to measure the effectiveness of your Control Measures.

It will visit your place of work, to minimise disruption, and project manages the entire operation.

An effective policy, including an effective drug and alcohol screening programme will help to ensure that potential problems are minimised.

The Mediright 'Influence' package is there exactly for that purpose Registered General Nurses are trained in the correct protocol and have access to independent external laboratories, to ensure and protect the interests of the individual and the company at all times.

Stewart Wright, chair of Wright Engineering, says: "In May 2009 I used guidance from the HSE to implement Health Screening and Drug and Alcohol testing across my workforce. I am proud to report that both are now valued additions to my company policy. I am convinced the professional services that Mediright provide will not only save money across industry and the NHS but more importantly save lives."
