Why do I Need Medical Examinations?
Not only is it a legal requirement for certain employees, it also protects the company from future liability. It’s vitally important to make sure that all your employees are healthy and not exposed to hazardous substances. In many cases, the employer is not even aware of the damage certain fumes, gases or other elements can cause. On-going exposure to these elements can cause damage in the long run. If the employer did not do everything reasonably possible to prevent the conditions, future claims may arise. As an employer, it’s possible that you are placing your employees and even the public at risk. You might not even consider that one of your drivers might have bad eye sight. An employee with diabetes can cause serious accidents. Some diabetic patients may experience blurry vision. This can easily be treated with the right medication. Not knowing that the symptoms are caused by diabetes can cause serious injury or even death. Another great example is as an employer; you might be using an employee with epilepsy to work on heights. If that employee suffers an attack and falls, the employer can be held responsible. There are a lot of factors that can contribute to the decay of an employee’s health. By doing medicals, you can ensure that you take the necessary steps. It’s the responsibility of the employer to ensure safe and healthy working conditions. By doing regular employee medical checks, you can prevent future health problems. The employer will also protect the company if they keep records of all employee medical checks done. This can support any future legal situations. We provide all the required medical services for your company. We aim our tests directly at your risks. This ensures that we do not do unnecessary tests. We always try and keep production loss to a minimal.
We Provide the Following Medical Examination Service:
Baseline Medical: This is a medical examination all employers should start with. This examination will be used as reference in the future. It’s important to get a gauge for future tests. The baseline needs to be kept on file and will provide a general status of the employee’s health.
Routine Medical: This type of medical check needs to be done regularly. During the routine medical examination, the occupational health practitioner will be able to determine fluctuation and changes in the employee’s general health.
Exit Medical: This medical examination must be done upon termination of employment. This is to ensure that the employee leaves the company in good health. This can help safeguard the employer from future claims.
Lung Function Tests: We have a mobile unit that can do all the required employee lung function tests. This is an important test to help diagnose and prevent any future respiratory diseases.
Eye Tests: We have a mobile unit that can provide employee eye tests. This test can ensure that the employer assigns the right position to the right employee. Making sure that employees have great sight is imperative to any safe workplace.
