Maurice, what you can and cannot ask employees and others about their medical health depends very much on your region and the laws that apply.

 

The kind of medical / health surveying systems that may be expected for a food safety point of view are:

 

- New employee health review (pre employment or post employment)

- Visitor / contractor health survey prior to entry to factory

- Employee return to work health review following absence through illness

- Employee return to work health review following holiday to high risk regions

- Employees reporting illness at work

 

Regards,

Simon
