You will be required to complete a questionnaire giving details of your medical history, provide a urine sample, be examined by one of the doctors we support and undergo a variety of biometric assessments such as height, weight and blood pressure, with a nurse. Depending on the nature of the role, you may be required to do a drug and alcohol test, hearing test, lung function test or ECG heart check. There may also be a functional capacity assessment, if the role is physically demanding.

Injury Treatment & Injury Management

For non-serious injuries sustained in the workplace, IMMEX occupational nurses and physiotherapists work with doctors consulting from IMMEX to provide the care and treatment you need. Your supervisor or first aid manager will arrange for your transportation to one of our clinics to be treated by one of the doctors that we support.

Your doctor and physiotherapist will help you in your rehabilitation and liaise with your supervisor or return to work co-ordinator to provide functional capacity and restrictions so that suitable duties can be formulated. Ongoing treatment, and medical reviews facilitate a quicker return to work outcome and therefore minimize the impact to you as the injured worker.

Health Surveillance Programs

Health Surveillance is often a legal requirement in a workplace where an employee is exposed to noise, vibration, ionising radiation, solvents, fumes, dust, biological agents and other substances hazardous to health in the workplace. A health surveillance program includes baseline and periodic monitoring to assist in determining your exposure to risk in the workplace and can include pathology, spirometry, audiometry or biochemical testing depending on the specifics of your workplace.

Your employer has a duty of care to ensure the health and safety of its workforce. If you have sustained a medical condition or injury outside of the work environment, you may be asked to have a consultation with one of the practitioners that IMMEX supports for a Fitness for Duties assessment. This is to ensure that you are fit to perform the essential tasks within your role without putting yourself or others at risk. Your specialist physician will objectively assess your capacity to perform the role based on all the evidence available. Depending on the role and the nature of the injury, a Functional Capacity assessment, conducted by one of our physiotherapists may also be performed.
