Night Worker Assessments

The purpose of a Night Worker Health Assessment is to determine whether a worker is fit to undertake night work. Due to the possible impact on a worker's wellbeing, employers must offer workers a free health assessment before they become a night worker and on a regular basis while they are working nights. Workers do not have to accept this health check.  Under Working Time Regulations, it is recommended that all night workers are to be offered an initial and an annual health assessment.
