  3. What is Cohort? Cohort is a web based Occupational Health software system that improves efficiency through streamlining processes and encouraging automation. It provides Occupational Health Departments the opportunity to go paper-light and ultimately paper-free. Cohort reduces errors and increases productivity, ultimately saving you time and money Management Referrals completed on Cohort can offer the opportunity to embed the correct support for our staff. There are specific questions you can ask to help establish what support is available. The quality of the referral will be reflected in the quality of the report you receive.

  4. What is a Management Referral? A management referral is made when there are concerns regarding the health of employees and the manager requires an independent opinion on the employees' fitness for work from an Occupational Health Assessment. An Occupational Health Assessment is a medical examination performed by an Occupational Health Nurse or Physician. Its main aim is to advise employers on the employee's health and make recommendations on what adjustments could be considered to ensure a safe/healthy working environment for that employee. It assesses an employee's physical and mental health and provides their employer with recommendations. Most often, they determine whether an employee is physically suited for a particular job.

  5. Why do we process Management Referrals? The main reason for referring an employee to occupational health is to help a manager resolve a situation where an employee's health might be affecting their fitness to carry out their job, or their job may be adversely affecting their health in some way. All businesses want to support their staff to achieve good health and wellbeing, doing their best to prevent avoidable illness and disease. When staff are unwell or have a disability we are there to support early interventions to support them to manage their condition, stay well and in work. When staff are off work through ill health the aim is to enable a return to work as quickly as possible by putting appropriate support in place.

  6. When to make a Management Referral? Long and short-term repeated absences by workers Guidance by Attendance Management Policy Advice on capability is the person able to do the job even though they have a medical problem? When a person might be returning from sick leave and advice on a suitable rehabilitation programme Disciplinary issues related to illness

  7. Developing Resilience to support your staff There are 5 different areas to be aware of and to look at when someone needs some additional support.
