What is a Pre Employment Medical?

Why do Pre-Employment Medicals?

  • Identify high risk candidates before they are your responsibility.
  • Help you manage your OHS risks and responsibilities.
  • Assess the physical ability of a candidate to perform a job.
  • Identify past or current injury or illness that might be affected by the job.

What is involved in a Pre Employment Medical?

  • Detailed Questionnaire – photo ID, current health status, occupational and medical history, previous accidents for example Motor Vehicle Accidents, previous workers compensation claims, and any problems experienced due to chemicals, dust and certain foods.
  • Preliminary Screening – BMI, pulse and blood pressure, visual testing, and routine urine analysis for blood glucose and protein.
  • Medical Assessment – conducted by an occupational medical practitioner who will explore and discuss all relevant aspects of the candidates medical and occupational history and perform a detailed physical examination.
  • Report – The occupational medical practitioner will provide a report that includes a recommendation on the candidates medical suitability for the specific role and the risk of aggravating a pre-existing condition or developing a new condition. You will receive the report within 24 hours, unless pending results or further investigations.
