We need to introduce a formal health questionnaire for some of our activities and are looking for any advice as to what we should be looking to include.

Any advice or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry can't help on this matter. I use the EEF Occ Health department to carry out all our questionnaires and screening

Hi there

Having worked in occy health for 15 years I used to deal with declarations of health and medical questionnaire. I will look to see if I have any copies at home but cannot promise I will find anything.

Much will depend on the type of business you work in. You will need to know whether the applicant suffers from any hearing difficulties if the work involves a noisey environment. Does the work involve manual handling - bad backs need to be known about, similarly any senstisers if you work with chemicals etc. In short tailor the questions to find out answers that reflect your business issues.
Regards,
Tim.
