Medical Assessments:

Pre-Employment Medical

The purpose of a Pre-Employment Medical Assessment is not to exclude, but rather to determine the safety and the suitability of the candidate in the proposed role. At The Work Doctor, we work closely in partnership with our clients to understand the specific risks and needs of their workplace, job roles, the demographics of the workforce and the level of risk that is able to be tolerated and managed within the business.

 

Commercial Driver Medical

Commercial Driver Medicals (nationally known as Fitness to Drive Assessments) are conducted to increase safety on the road for all, by ensuring drivers can adequately perform tasks when driving a heavy vehicle. Drivers of a commercial vehicle are required to comply with legislation and be  certified as 'fit to drive'  in accordance with the National Medical Standard of Assessing Fitness to Drive (updated in March 2012). Our medical assessments are conducted in accordance to these standards. 

 

Rail Safety Worker Medical

The Rail Workers Safety Medical forms a part of the Transport (Rail Safety) Act 2010, which requires rail operators to have and implement a health management program for their employees. There are three types of rail medicals and each category is based on the role of the employee. 

 

Coal Mine Workers Medicals

All employees and contractors that are working on a coal mine site in Queensland are required to undergo a Queensland Coal Mine Workers Medical Assessment. This assessment is conducted before employment and periodically during employment. 

 

Confined Space Medical 

Entering or working in a confined space can be hazardous and may impose extra physiological demands, therefore workers in this environment require a specialised medical to determine suitability to confined spaces.
