Sally Baker has worked as occupational health adviser at British Gypsum since 2004 The business has faced a number of significant changes during this time and our management team and employees have been able to rely on Sally’s support and assistance throughout this period. Sally is responsible for providing health surveillance, health promotion and sickness absence monitoring for a workforce totalling 130. Sally is efficient, reliable and has a keen eye for detail. Such qualities are invaluable in a commercial organisation such as British Gypsum.

In 2010 we took a policy decision to establish an occupational health (OH) provision at our Kendal site. We are a manufacturing business employing 211 people in a variety of roles ranging from administration to heavy industrial processes. Sally Baker at Fit2Work was appointed to deliver our OH requirements. Policies and procedures tailored to our needs were developed and implemented by Fit2Work. Sally uses an evidence-based approach for health surveillance which is very important to us because it introduces efficiencies to our business by targeting the OH resource only where it is needed. We particularly like the “no-nonsense” approach of Fit2Work because we know the job will get done with the minimum of disruption to production.

With over  16,500 acres of land, We have 26 full time employees and 14 seasonal and part time staff serving a wide range of enterprises including maintenance of properties and grounds, forestry, sawmill, rural sports and tourism attractions.  We have used Sally Baker at Fit2Work since 2005 for specific OH requirements including noise surveillance and health screening. Sally’s rural background has enabled her to understand our business and our specialist needs. I find the service provided by Fit2Work Occupational Health to be efficient and cost-effective and I would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

Sally Baker has provided an occupational health and wellbeing programme tailored to the needs of our employees.

I recently approached Fit2Work for advice regarding health monitoring. Sally visited our site and we held a discussion about the potential hazards and health surveillance required to meet legislation. Sally undertook the health surveillance in a no fuss, no nonsense, easy to understand manner. The feedback was comprehensible and straight forward. She has an easy manner with the employee’s and I have no hesitations recommending Fit2Work  for your occupational health requirements.
