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.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 states that under current legislation employers have a duty of care to prevent the ill health of their workers. It is important that workers are not suffering from medical conditions or undergoing any treatments that could cause a loss of consciousness or impairment issues (either mental or mobility-related). Not only could such issues compromise an individual’s ability to undertake their work, if in a safety-critical role, it could pose a significant risk to the health and safety of the individual themselves as well as co-workers and the general public.
The safety critical medical takes about 1 hour and can be combined with drug and alcohol testing to save you time and money. Appointments can be scheduled quickly to meet urgent needs. They can be performed on-site at your place of work, in your own home, or anywhere else convenient. Alternatively, undertaking the medical assessment at a dedicated testing facility in our Warrington Walk in Centre* could save you more than £100.
