Occupational Health

HR services for schools and academies

Through Schools’ Choice, schools and academies can access occupational health services provided by the People Asset Management (PAM) Group. PAM provides a range of services including medical advice related to work issues, health assessments for new starters and more.

The occupational health service is delivered by a team of health professionals who have specialised in occupational medicine, the branch of medicine that deals the relationship between health and work.

PAM’s services are accessed via their secure online portal.  Using a unique secure log in and password, referring managers in schools can:

  • Submit a pre-employment health screening check using PAM’s Fit4Jobs service for new employees

  • Make an occupational health referral for existing employees

    The system also allows referring managers to track both new starter checks and referrals.

    Using their medical triage process, PAM will determine what sort of appointment is appropriate and will alert the referring manager to the details of the appointment.

    PAM will provide written advice to the referring manager following the consultation with the employee, subject to strict guidelines regarding medical information and confidentiality.  Reports may make recommendations for further treatment options, such as counselling, physiotherapy or cognitive behavioural therapy, and may also recommend seeking additional information from an employee’s GP or specialist.  

    PAM will also undertake pension / ill health retirement assessment as part of their support to subscribing schools.

    PAM’s secure portal can be accessed via this link, https://www.ohiosystems.co.uk/.

    You’ll need your username and password to hand whenever you want to access the system.
