Medical Assessments are carried out to ensure an employee is fit to work in a specific environment, can fulfil the requirements of a role, can travel overseas and to protect them from potentially harmful work environments.
We offer a range of Employment Medical Assessments including:
Our Pre-Employment medical examination provides a baseline health assessment for a worker before they enter a role with an employer. The examination assists with risk management and identifies whether a worker is medically suitable in the role in which they are applying.
A standard Pre-Employment includes:
- Blood pressure
- Doctor review of medical history questionnaire
- Doctor review:
- Peripheral vision
- Oral and ear
- Nervous system
- Basic musculoskeletal.
Audiometry Assessment (hearing test)
It is a statutory requirement under AS/NZS 1269.4:2005 for workers who use personal hearing protectors to undergo an Audiometry Assessment before they commence their role, and to continue to do so every two years. Our assessments will provide a baseline hearing test to limit liability for future hearing loss claims, as well as monitor the impact of long-term noise exposure.
A Musculoskeletal Assessment provides an evaluation of the condition and function of a worker’s musculoskeletal health, lifting capabilities and any injuries that may impact on their ability to safely perform the inherent requirements of their job.
Spirometry Assessment (air flow)
A Spirometry Assessment measures the degree of airflow obstruction. This Assessment is often used to assess for asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and a number of other lung diseases.
