Health surveillance expert Sound Advice has added three new self-sufficient mobile medical units to its nationwide fleet in order to satisfy the rise in demand for health assessments in the workplace.
Each van is fully equipped to carry out audiometry, lung function, noise, air and vibration assessments, as well as drug and alcohol testing, providing onsite industry standard testing to all employees.
Danny Clarke, head of occupational health and safety at Sound Advice, says:
“Sound Advice continues to develop and enhance its network and fleet in order to deliver essential occupational health services to even more clients across the UK.
“There is an increasing awareness amongst employers around occupational health issues. Last year, we carried out 52,000 hearing tests alone and the addition to our fleet will allow us to carry out even more tests to manage the rise in demand.
“We recognise the need to be able to come onsite, at the employer’s request, to deliver our service – especially within the motor vehicle body repair and mechanical service industries, where testing is a legal requirement.
“Being able to be able to go directly to the employers ‘base’ is becoming increasingly important, as it mitigates any risk of a drop in productivity.”
Sound Advice has a national presence providing occupational health and health surveillance services to over 60,000 UK workers across its 1,500 clients.
