An occupational health team of four experts
All Aava occupational health customers have a dedicated occupational health team consisting of an Occupational Physician, an Occupational Health Nurse, an Occupational Psychologist and an Occupational Physiotherapist. But what does an occupational health team do?
An occupational health team plans and provides occupational health care to meet the needs of the customer company. An occupational health team is made up of four leading experts in their fields to promote well-being. Read the job descriptions of the team members below.
Occupational Health Nurse
Occupational Health Nurses are in charge of many occupational health care duties. They perform occupational health check-ups for employees and are available for appointments in case of illness.
Occupational Health Nurses ensure a well-functioning service system by managing the communications between the customer company, occupational health care staff and the authorities. They visit workplaces independently or together with other team members.
An Occupational Physician is the number one expert in an occupational health team, in charge of helping employees maintain their ability to work. Occupational Health Physicians increase the vitality of companies by tackling risks related to work ability in good time and by preventing sick leave.
An Aava Occupational Physician is an employee’s primary contact person in an occupational health team. This means less time spent getting to know new people and more time for immediate, in-depth treatment. When your company hires a new employee or an employee’s job description changes, an Occupational Physician can check the employee’s suitability for the job.
An Occupational Psychologist is an expert on the psychosocial and cognitive stress factors and sources of strength related to work. Occupational Health Psychologists promote the coping of individual employees, supervisors, work communities and the overall organisation.
During an individual appointment with an Occupational Psychologist, you can discuss matters related to your work or personal life, such as stress, lack of motivation, sleep problems and human relationships. An Occupational Psychologist can examine the psychosocial situation of the work community and help the community to find solutions for improving wellbeing at work based on that assessment.
