Employment Medical Checks

Understand the medical factors that may affect your employees

An employment medical check is a type of health screening used to evaluate and monitor potential health risks that might restrict candidates or employees in performing their work responsibilities. This process involves a general medical examination to assess a candidate’s current health.

Why conduct employment medical checks?

Conducting regular employment medical checks helps to ensure that your candidates and employees are suitable to enter the workplace and conduct their working activities.

There are many reasons why employers should conduct employment medical checks: 

  • Ensure your workforce is capable of completing their job responsibilities. Health issues may affect an employee’s ability to complete these responsibilities, hence it is important to have full knowledge of any potential risks to an employee’s performance.
  • Safety is of utmost importance in the workplace. When employees or candidates are affected by relevant health issues, their safety may be put at risk. Reduce your company’s exposure to injuries and potential insurance claims by conducting screening to ensure your employees are fully capable of completing their work tasks.
  • Screening your prospective candidates for health risks could save you time and money in the long run by understanding whether the candidate is suitable for the role.
  • Medical checks are an important component of employment screening. Complete your necessary due diligence to understand an employee’s context and whether there are any adjustments that would assist them in the workplace. This can boost employee morale and productivity.

When should you conduct medical checks for employment? 

We recommend conducting employment medical checks both on prospective new candidates as well as regular ongoing screening for existing employees. This helps to protect you in all situations listed above.

Who should conduct employment medical checks?

There are many industries that should include regular employment medical checks as part of its employment screening processes:

  • Healthcare and any environment where “vulnerable” or “special needs” populations are involved (e.g. aged care, children, people with disabilities)
  • Manufacturing, Transportation & Construction
  • Energy & Utilities
  • Government & Education
  • Financial Services
  • Legal Services
  • Retail

These industries would most benefit from employment medical checks to ensure candidates are suitable for work in this environment. However this is not an exhaustive list and we would recommend all businesses conduct regular medical checks for maximum peace of mind.
