Medicals Designed by Medical Specialists

Is the health assessment of your workers designed by medical specialists in causation, function and risk? Are they overseen by an Occupational and Environmental Physician - the only medical specialist specifically trained in assessing risk? 

Employment medical assessments can sometimes be seen as a box ticking exercise. But, this can be a high price for a document that might be looked at once and filed away. 

Our employment medicals are customised to accommodate specific job requirements. We have taken the time to understand the job description, the safety aspects of the environment the person will be working under, as well as comprehensive occupational, family and personal history.

Assessments for every role

Matching the Capacity of the Worker with the Role

Ideally, employment assessments are aimed at enhancing the likelihood of hiring workers who can meet your specific requirements within an acceptable level of risk both to the worker and the employer. Depending on the industry, some job types require a specialised workforce and that employees be in the right physical conditions. These tasks require high levels of fitness and when the safety of workers may be at risk, it becomes imperative to carry out a medical assessment.

Pre-existing Health Conditions?

That’s the Reality for Nearly Half of all Australians. 

We design medical assessment programs that make a genuine impact to your workforce.

We know that we don’t live in an ideal world where every worker or candidate is the perfect picture of health and fitness. In fact, just under half of Australians have one or more chronic health conditions,  two thirds of Australians over 18 are overweight or obese and about 1 in 5 people identify as having a mental health condition.

Translate that into your average waiting room full of candidates? Chances are the best person for the role may have a condition and you will need advice about ensuring their ongoing fitness for the position. Health Improvement Plans are a way of recognising a health issue and putting in place an individualised plan to manage and modify the worker’s health issues. This plan can assist with reducing or eliminating health concerns that present significant and foreseeable risk in the workplace.
