Yes, you can use the Present Perfect and write: He has never taken a day off work.

Hello Vinu,

Even though I have corrected the grammar in your question, I'm not sure I understand exactly what it is that you want to know. However, I can tell you that in the right context it is possible to say something like this:

- Did you notice that he has never taken a day off work?

You can also say something like this, for example:

- Have you noticed that he never takes a day off work?
