Pre-Employment Medical Assessments
IMMEX offers a range of comprehensive and industry specific Pre-Employment medical assessments to help employers select candidates with the physical ability to perform the inherent requirements of the role.
In industries where a prescribed health standard exists e.g commercial drivers, safety critical roles, IMMEX Pre-Employment medical assessments can assess the candidate against the relevant health standard. If there is a risk of a candidate aggravating a pre-existing condition, having a re-occurrence or developing a condition by performing the role, an IMMEX Pre-Employment medical assessment will identify the risk and make recommendations as to steps to take to minimise the likelihood.
Depending on the requirements of the role our Pre-Employment medical assessments include:
- Blood Pressure & Pulse
- Vision Acuity & Colour Test
- Height & Weight
- Body Mass Index
- Urine Analysis
An experienced IMMEX SIRA accredited medical practitioner will review the results of the candidate’s questionnaire and initial test results prior to assessing the candidate themselves. The IMMEX doctor will assess and consolidate all relevant aspects of the candidate’s medical history and physical condition to make a recommendation to the candidate’s ability to perform the proposed role.
Pre-Employment Medical plus Audiometry (hearing) test
For those roles that require a base line hearing assessment to identify any abnormalities, audiometry testing conducted in an Audiometry Booth, can be added.
Pre-Employment Medical plus Spirometry (lung function) test
For those roles that require a base line lung function assessment to identify obstruction or abnormalities, a Spirometry test can be added.
IMMEX Pre-Employment Medical Examinations help to manage your WHS risks and responsibilities by assessing the physical ability of a candidate to perform a particular role. Results are emailed within 1 working day of the medical examination (when not waiting on external results).
Additional Tests to Combine with
Alcohol Breath Test (only)
Urine Drug Screen (only)
Urine Drug Screen and Alcohol Breath Test
Chain of Custody Test (for non negative urine drug results)
Functional and fitness assessments are performed by our physiotherapists as an adjunct to the pre-employment medical process. These assessments are designed to cover flexibility and strength, task matched to the job description. The assessment will provide you with a better indication of the candidate’s physical capacity, allowing you to appropriately match a job to the applicant’s functional capacity.
