Screen Potential Employees For Risk Factors That May Limit Their Ability To Work Or Drive

Pre-employment medical exams are performed to determine the physical or mental ability of a worker to perform the job they are hired to do, and identify any medical conditions that may impede their ability to do their job safely and effectively.

Pre-Employment Medicals

Many employers and work positions require a pre-employment medical assessment (PEM). These assessments are performed for the safety of the employee, employer, and the general public by screening for a range of factors that may limit an ability to safely perform a job and avoid injury. Pre-employment medicals are proven to reduce workplace accidents, WorkCover claims, employee turnover, and improve job satisfaction.

Pre-employment medicals typically start with a questionnaire detailing your medical history, family history, and work history. The next step involves a range of basic medical tests that may include:

     //  Blood Pressure
     //  Vision
     //  Weight
     //  Height
     //  Pulse

//  Blood Pressure
//  Vision
//  Weight
//  Height

Other tests may be requested such as:

     //  Urine
     //  Drug & Alcohol
     //  Fitness
     //  Spirometry (Respiratory)

     //  Pathology
     //  Audiometry
     //  Chest X-Ray
     //  Psychological

     //  Electrocardiogram(ECG)
     //  Further vision including color blindness
     //  Musculoskeletal (Physical Capacity)

Fitness To Drive Medicals

Driving is a complex process requiring the individual behind the wheel to have a reasonable level of health and fitness. Drivers must meet certain standards to make sure their health status does not cause any unnecessary risk of injury to themselves or others.  

Some medical conditions that may facilitate the need for a drivers medical exam include:

     //  Heart Disease
     //  Vision Problems
     //  Sleep Disorders
     //  Seizures & Epilepsy
     //  Psychiatric Disorders

     //  Blackouts
     //  Diabetes
     //  Age-related Decline

//  Heart Disease
//  Vision Problems
//  Sleep Disorders
//  Seizures & Epilepsy
//  Psychiatric Disorders

//  Blackouts
//  Diabetes
//  Age-related Decline

Your doctor will assess your results and may make recommendations to the driving authority suggesting certain conditions are placed on your license, such as restrictions on driving during certain times of the day or need to wear glasses. You must comply with the restrictions placed on your license.  

WorkCover

Your GP is an essential part of the quick recovery and ongoing management of a workplace accident.

Your first step after a workplace injury is to notify your employer, then seek medical attention from your GP for advice on a WorkCover Certificate. Make sure you have your WorkCover claim number details - you will need these when you come in.

Your GP will fill out a WorkCover certificate that outlines the duties you can and cannot perform as well as the steps to recovery. This certificate also communicates your case between your employer, insurer, and other health professionals.

Arrange your appointment. You’re only 5 minutes away from a beautiful smile.
