Under the Working Time Regulations, night workers must be offered a health assessment before starting work.
Employees don’t have to accept the offer but it must be made.
A night worker questionnaire is used to assess if there are any health risks associated with an employee working night shifts, taking into account that night work might increase a person’s stress levels.
We offer an online night worker questionnaire that only takes your employee 10 minutes to complete. Their answers will then be reviewed by one of our occupational health advisors who will issue a fitness-to-work certificate.
If any of the answers given highlight any areas of concern about the employee’s fitness then they will be referred to one of our occupational health advisors for a follow-up telephone call.
