Full Services Resume
It’s so hard to believe that we are half-way through the year, and we now talk about “when we were in Lockdown” – our collective experience. We trust that your workplace is managing well under COVID Alert Level 1, and that you are enjoying seeing and interacting with your workmates again. All WOHC Health Ltd Clinics, although open during Lockdown are now fully operational and we can now resume our full range of services, including Spirometry and Breath Alcohol testing. Spirometry and alcohol breath testing update Following advice from the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand we are able to resume Spirometry testing, with additional safety measures in place: · Worker screening for any current illness or COVID exposures (We already have this in place) · Testing needs to occur in a well-ventilated room with our occupational health nurse positioned to the side and behind the worker. · A special bacterial/viral filter will be used with the spirometer. · Our occupational health nurse will be wearing gloves and may be wearing a mask · All surfaces will be cleaned between workers · With similar measures in place (facing away from our occupational health nurse, gloves), we have already resumed this service. Safety Alert from WorkSafe – Non-compliant respiratory protective equipment With an abundance of “respiratory protective” equipment (RPE) into the country, concerns have been raised with regard to their compliance with the AS/NZS 1716:2012. WorkSafe’s latest Safety Alert gives an indication of how to tell whether the respirator you are using is fit for purpose. Have a look at their website for more information. Our specialist Occupational Health Nurses are able to undertake respirator fit testing, and advise on the appropriate Respiratory Protective Equipment. We look forward to providing our full range of services again. Please don’t hesitate to call or email us should you require any further advice.

WHAT DO OUR Clients SAY?
Dunstan Nutrition Ltd has been using WOHC for annual lung function and hearing monitoring of our Production Staff for the past 10 years. We have also engaged WOHC for other occupational health matters such as annual influenza vaccinations. WOHC have provided an excellent service at all times. They are professional, prompt and courteous in all their dealings with us and we would highly recommend their services to any Company wishing to ensure that the occupational health and wellbeing of their staff is monitored and maintained at the highest possible levels.
