Occupational Health

Our Employee Assistance Programme offers a fully integrated occupational health service to help employers manage all aspects of health, absence management and wellbeing at work.

We believe that Employee Assistance Programmes and OH services go hand in hand, and we maximise the relationship between the two, ensuring an effective, cost-competitive and holistic service to our customers and their employees.

Occupational health reduces the costs of sickness and absence, reduces the risk of litigation, enhances staff retention and workforce performance and encourages compliance with health & safety and employment legislation.

Counselling referrals via OH

It is common practice that a need for counselling or psychological support will be identified through an occupational health referral. In this instance, your OH provider or in-house OH team can contact WSM directly, enabling us to carefully select which psychological support service best fits the needs of your employee.

We lead the market in the provision of high quality and responsive counselling referrals received from occupational health. This is a speciality of WSM and we work closely with a number of leading UK OH providers and with numerous in-house OH teams.


WSM has established partnerships with a number of leading UK OH providers, so we can offer a seamless Occupational Health provision to keep things simple.

We can offer a wide variety of innovative health solutions in addition to all traditional Occupational Health Solutions which include Insurance Advisory and Rehabilitation Services, Pension Fund Advisory Services for early ill health retirement and pension review cases.
