Night Workers Assessment
Under The Working Time Regulations 1998, all night workers should be offered an initial and an annual health assessment. A night worker is classified as an individual who regularly works for more than three hours during the period 11pm to 6am.
The purpose of the assessment is to ensure that your health is not being adversely affected by nightshift work.
This assessment takes the form of a Health Questionnaire which is reviewed by an Occupational Health Doctor or Nurse familiar with the employer’s business and the nature of the employees work duties. A report on fitness will be provided to the employees manager.
