Welcome to Employees Health Surveillance on-site nationwide for Individuals and Workplaces.

Because entering or working in a confined space can be hazardous and may impose extra physiological demands, evaluation of each person’s medical condition is required.

All persons SHOULD be medically assessed and then reassessed at appropriate intervals (every 12 months unless otherwise indicted by the examiner) as competent to perform activities relevant to their entry and work associated with the confined space.
