Racing’s Occupational Health Service exists to support racing’s workforce to either remain in work or return to work following illness or injury. The successful service is now entering its third full year and we are keen to hear from employers on how we can continue to improve the service.
We externally evaluate the service each year and we know that it is having a positive impact on users, for example 94% of ROHS users said that it helped them get back to work or improved their ability to do their job and 76% of ROHS users said that they were less likely to be off work from illness or injury.
As part of our continuous review and development of the service we want to hear from employers on how it could be improved from your perspective, so that we know it is working for everyone.
As such, we are setting up a user group of employers who use Racing’s Occupational Health Service. We very much hope that you will be part of this group, offering your thoughts and suggestions on any improvements or changes that could benefit you and your staff.
It is important for us to hear your views and the time commitment from you is minimal. The group will meet three times in total over the Spring and Summer of 2021 for just an hour and a half each time. All of these meetings will be online, at a time to suit everyone.
WHO CAN GET INVOLVED?
Anyone who is an employer; we would like a range of employers from across the industry, including training yards, the breeding sector and racecourses. This will help us to ensure that we develop the service in a balanced way, to meet the needs of all.
