Hepatitis B vaccinations for Occupational Health reasons
Posted on 15 Apr 2016
Under Health and Safety legislation employers have a duty to provide a safe working environment. Employers should undertake a risk assessment and arrange protection for employees, including, where necessary, immunisation against Hepatitis B. If an assessment reveals a risk the employer has a duty to act and should make arrangements with a suitably qualified medical service to meet the relevant obligations.
This practice is not aware of the situation and hazards in your workplace and does not have occupational expertise to advise on the risks involved. Therefore we regret that it is inappropriate for us to proceed.
The NHS does not fund Hepatitis immunisation for employment purposes.
