The health and safety of a workforce is an integral part of any productive organisation ensuring employees are fit and healthy and have the ability to perform the requirements of the job.
Our employment medicals are customised to accommodate the specific job requirements. We take the time to understand the job description, the safety aspects of the environment they will be working under, as well as comprehensive occupational, family and personal history.
Our baseline medicals include:
- Height, weight, body mass index (BMI)
- Visual acuity including colour vision test
- Hearing test including Audiometry
- Cardiovascular examination
- Musculoskeletal examination
- Central nervous system examination
- Respiratory examination including Spirometry
- Drug & Alcohol Testing
- Chest X-Ray (optional)
We offer a range of Employment Medical Assessments including:
Audiometry Assessment (hearing test)
It is a statutory requirement under AS/NZS 1269.4:2005 for workers who use personal hearing protectors to undergo an Audiometry Assessment before they commence their role, and to continue to do so every two years. Our assessments will provide a baseline hearing test to limit liability for future hearing loss claims, as well as monitor the impact of long-term noise exposure.
A Musculoskeletal Assessment provides an evaluation of the condition and function of a worker’s musculoskeletal health, lifting capabilities and any injuries that may impact on their ability to safely perform the inherent requirements of their job.
Spirometry Assessment (air flow)
A Spirometry Assessment measures the degree of airflow obstruction. This Assessment is often used to assess for asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and a number of other lung diseases.
