  For Employers

As an employer, an integral part of providing a safe work environment is ensuring that your occupational health service practitioners work as an extension of your business. From recruitment all the way through to return to work post injury, your occupational health practitioners should be working with you hand in hand. When comparing occupational health service providers to find one that is suitable for your business you should look beyond just the price. Considerations for choosing occupational health practitioners that consult from IMMEX as your occupational health service partner include:

Fast Turn Around Times

Fast turnaround times for assessments such as Pre-Employment Medical Examinations impact your ability to mobilise new staff to sites or projects in a timely manner. IMMEX supports practitioners who provide Pre-Employment Medical Examinations to help manage your WHS risks and responsibilities by assessing the physical ability of a candidate to perform a particular role.

Following the assessment, your occupational medical practitioner will provide a report that includes a recommendation on the candidate’s medical suitability for the specific role and the risk of aggravating a pre-existing condition or developing a new condition. This enables you, the employer, to appropriately determine your course of action. Your doctor or physiotherapist will phone you to discuss any significant findings and our staff will ensure you receive the report within 24 hours.

Our aim is to support practitioners so they can provide the best injury management and medical examinations, assessment and reporting, based on evidence and the best possible return-to-work and return to life outcomes for workers in the shortest possible time.
