No Fuss Pre-Employment Medicals Laurieton NSW

A Pre-Employment Medical assesses and evaluates an individual’s physical capacity to safely perform the critical demands of a new employment role. It should also benchmark any progressive disability. This information would limit the extent of liability for the employer should that person become injured. Failing to implement an appropriate assessment protocol would leave the employer open to potential high risk employees and subsequent compensation claims. Our doctors are skilled at obtaining information about current and past injuries and ailments that a job applicant may have kept from the employer. Our Pre-Employment Medical will help with your risk management as an employer, helping you identify candidates who have pre-existing injuries or conditions that may affect you down the track. However, a Pre-Employment Medical cannot include tests for disability. Employers cannot discriminate against a potential employee with a pre-existing condition, unless it would directly interfere with performance of their duties.

Some medical checks might also ask for Urine Drug Screening and ABI (Ankle-Brachial Index), which checks for risk of peripheral artery disease (PAD), a condition that may be a problem if the job requires standing for long periods.

Employees who attend for a Pre-Employment Medical should bring their driver’s licence or other photo ID. If they wear spectacles, contact lenses or hearing aids, they should bring them too.
