Occupational Health

University College Dublin is committed to ensuring the health and safety of all of its employees and believes that no employee should suffer any accident or ill health as a result of their employment by the University nor should their employment exacerbate any existing medical condition that they might have. To this end, the University operates an Occupational Health Programme in conjunction with a firm of occupational healthcare specialists.

The Occupational Health Programme includes a pre-employment screening of potential employees; ongoing health surveillance of existing employees where necessary; assessment and treatment of workplace injuries; the identification and implementation of specific control measures designed to reduce the risk from workplace activities to individual employees with pre-existing medical conditions; pregnant employee risk assessments; ergonomic risk assessments; chemical exposure monitoring; regular reviews of potentially hazardous working areas; the operation of an Employee Assistance Programme and other measures as may be deemed necessary.

The operation of the University's Occupational Heath Programme is jointly managed by the University SIRC Office and UCD HR.

Enquiries regarding the operation of the University's Occupational Health Programme should be sent to (opens in a new window)sirc@ucd.ie 

The University also operates an Employee Assistance Service (EAS) providing a range of confidential services to all staff and their immediate families. Further information is available from Culture and Engagement - UCD HR.
