Types of Occupational Health Medicals
Pre-employment assessments are vital in ensuring that prospective employees are fit for the job they have been offered. These assessments typically involve questionnaires and medical examinations, helping to establish baseline health records and assess an individual’s suitability for the role. Our priority at Private Medical Clinic is to ensure that these assessments are conducted with utmost care and fairness, aligning with the Equality Act 2010 to avoid discrimination.
Fitness for work assessments are not limited to the pre-employment phase. These periodic health checks are essential to ensure that employees remain medically fit to perform their tasks safely and effectively throughout their employment. These assessments are particularly crucial for roles that demand a higher degree of physical or mental capability, such as roles involving work at height, in confined spaces, and driving commercial vehicles.
When an employee returns to work after a prolonged sickness absence, our occupational health assessments offer guidance on their readiness and capabilities. These assessments aid in designing effective return-to-work plans, accommodating adjustments, and preventing further health-related issues. This type of assessment serves as a bridge between an employee’s health and their responsibilities in the workplace.
Health surveillance involves continuous monitoring of employees exposed to specific health risks, such as noise, vibration, hazardous substances, and ionizing radiation. These ongoing health checks are crucial for detecting early signs of ill health, enabling timely interventions and control measures. Our commitment at Private Medical Clinic is to ensure that employees are safeguarded against potential health risks and that their health and safety are prioritised.
In addition to the aforementioned assessments, there are numerous other assessments designed to address specific health issues and risks. These assessments encompass mental health and stress assessments, ergonomic workstation assessments, musculoskeletal assessments, and more. Each assessment is tailored to the unique needs of the employee and the demands of their job role.
