It is at an interesting time that we at Global Occupational Health Solutions have decided to join the BHBPA, however it is also during times of challenge that we need the support of our communities and it was your emphasis on this which struck a chord as it aligns well to our underlying values – so here we are!
At Global Occupational Health our aim to is help you support your people as we believe that people are the heart of every business. We provide health and wellbeing services to empower all parties to make positive choices, as resilience makes good business sense.
Normally, a large part of our service provision revolves around health surveillance services, which the HSE states allows for early identification of ill health and helps identify any corrective action needed. Health surveillance may be required by law if your employees are exposed to noise or vibration, solvents, fumes, dusts, biological agents and other substances hazardous to health, or work in compressed air.
In addition, we offer Safety Critical Medicals or Fit for Work Certificates mainly for the construction and infrastructure industries, however at the moment this is proving rather taxing with the two metre rule!
Another part of our service is our wellbeing offer and I was recognised as the UK Ambassador to the Mad World Summit last year for some of the work we have been doing (mainly in schools) supporting pupils and teachers as part of our Change to Thrive Program.
At the moment, our focus is changing towards supporting people and companies through the current COVID 19 situation and unusual circumstances call for solutions that allow you to support your employees and manage these difficult working conditions
We are offering the option of recording short webinars so organisations can put them out on a digital forum. These webinars are relevant to the current situation and developed to allow managers to offer support to employees remotely. Examples of topics we can cover are:
Personally, I am looking forward to meeting you all in due course, however I suspect this might be some time off! However, in the interim, if you think there might be any opportunities for partnership working; if we can help you or vice versa, then please get in touch. I look forward to being an active part of this community.

"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
