Pre-Employment Medicals

Pre and Post-employment medicals are now an integral component for any business when employing new staff or to assess existing staff’s ability to perform general or specific tasks important to their job. These assessments are designed to identify possible risk factors due to pre-existing ailments, which in turn can help to minimize workplace incidents and injuries. Having a professional medical examination prior to employing staff will result in reliable savings in workers compensation premiums in the event of workplace injury or illness and increase long term productivity.

Our assessments can include:

  • Urine, Drug and Alcohol screening
  • Audiograms
  • Vision tests
  • Blood pressure
  • Full Spirometry (Lung function)
  • Body mass index
  • Urine analysis
  • Strength tests
  • Joint range of motion
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
