Divider Absence Management - Sugarman Occupational Health Services

Absence Management

Sickness absence is costing companies £692 per employee/year according to the CIPD placing excessive pressure on both organisations and their employees. With stress and musculo-skeletal disorders being examples of the most common causes of long-term absence, our principal focus is to assist you to facilitate early and safe return to work combined with supporting interventions such as counselling and physiotherapy.

Key benefits of using an occupational health service to assist with absence management include:

  • Reductions in short-term and long-term absence levels
  • Early active support for employees when absent or returning to work
  • Support and training for line managers, HR and Health and Safety
  • Management of litigation risks
  • Increased productivity and morale

Our Services

Sugarman offer a simple and effective case management referral service for employers from all locations across the UK. We operate remote telephone consultation services in addition to face to face assessments with our occupational health advisors and physicians. We can arrange to see your employees anywhere in the UK at independent clinics or at their place of home or work.  The turnaround time is usually 10 working days from the time of the request to the assessment and you will receive a comprehensive report normally within 5 working days of the assessment. We can also arrange physiotherapy and counselling sessions in support of the employee's return to work programme.

In particular we offer:

  • Professional independent advice, assessments and reports by our occupational health advisors and physicians to facilitate a safe and prompt return to work for employees who have had health problems
  • Advising on rehabilitation and redeployment on health grounds, which may mean modification or changes to employee’s hours, duties, job tasks, either on a temporary or permanent basis
  • Advice and recommendations in relation to The Equality Act 2010
  • Supporting services from our UK network of occupational physiotherapists and counsellors
