Any employee who may work in a potentially dangerous environment needs to be fit to do so. Safety critical medical assessments are in-depth medicals designed to ensure that anyone undertaking safety critical tasks is healthy and competent to perform their work. Examples of safety critical roles, include:
- Plant operators
- Mechanical handling equipment operators
- Roadside workers
- Asbestos licensed workers
What does the safety critical medical include?
The safety critical medical takes around 1 hour and can be combined with drug and alcohol testing to save you time and money. The tests include a general health questionnaire, Snellen (eye), audiometry (hearing test), lung function, urinalysis, blood pressure as well as height, weight and body mass index (BMI).
The medical assessment can be performed at our Walk in Centre. Alternatively, our nationwide network of medical professionals can visit a convenient location (whether work or home) to undertake the medical assessment and testing services for a variety of industries.
