A position no employer wants to be in

Anna Linning - Phoenix Occupational Medicine

The recent tragedy of the NSW Hunter Valley bus crash serves as a stark reminder of the importance of workplace health. The crash highlights how undetected health issues can have devastating consequences.

Pre-employment medical assessments and alcohol and other drug testing programs offer valuable tools to mitigate such risks – especially in transport and industries with safety critical roles. Here's how they can benefit your company:

  • Enhanced Safety: Identify potential health conditions that could compromise an employee's ability to perform their duties safely. This could include anything from vision or hearing impairments to pre-existing musculoskeletal conditions or even undiagnosed sleep apnoea. By ensuring employees can handle the job's demands, you create a safer environment for everyone.
  • Pre-employment medicals are not just about protecting your business; they also demonstrate your commitment to employee well-being. We understand that today’s workforce is getting older and less fit, so we offer support in managing health conditions at work.

Considering implementing pre-employment medicals?

It's crucial to ensure they comply with relevant regulations and focus on identifying job-related health risks. Please feel free to contact us if you’re considering including pre-employment medical assessment in your risk management approach.
