The health and safety of your staff is essential. You can manage your workforce risk with a pre-employment medical assessment to screen candidates for risk factors that may limit their ability to perform a job safely and effectively. Reduce workplace injuries, minimise downtime and create a safer working environment. Medical assessments are conducted to meet all Australian state and territory WorkSafe requirements.
The benefits of conducting medical assessments on your employees can include:
Medical Assessments may include, but are not limited, to:
A Medical Examination provides comprehensive assessments to determine a candidate or worker’s suitability to perform the inherent requirements of a role and identify any current or future risk factors. Administration of a comprehensive full medical history questionnaire, detailed review of work and non-work injuries and medical history is seen as one of the most critical components of the assessment.
The Medical Examination includes:
The test is a comprehensive ‘task matching’ assessment, and involves evaluation of:
The use of alcohol and recreational drugs can present a hazard in the workplace. In addition, drug and alcohol screening is a statutory requirement in some industries.
The Drug test screens for a range of illicit drugs such as cannabis, opiates, methamphetamines, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, cocaine, PCP, barbiturates, methadone, propoxyphene, and methaqualone (quaaludes).
Medical Assessments are performed onsite at one of 38 accredited clinics located across Australia. If the candidate is unable to attend an accredited clinic, in most cases, an arrangement can be made for them to attend one of 400 associate medical clinics, which will incur an additional fee. We will reach out to the candidate to make arrangements once the order has been processed and advise of any additional costs incurred to attend an associate medical clinic should it be necessary.
Results are usually returned within 48 hours for most assessments after the applicant’s medical assessment appointment.
Instant Urine Drug Screen and Lab Urine Drug Screen results may take longer if a non-negative drug test is returned. As is required by Australian Law, a non-negative drug test must be sent for confirmation testing by a NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) accredited laboratory to confirm the presence of drugs within the specimen.
