Periodic Medicals

Why is a Periodical Medical performed? When you hire a worker a pre-employment medical is commonly requested ensure they are fit to perform the role to which you are employing them.  How do you manage your workers once they have been employed?

What risk do they become to your company if, for whatever reason, they can no longer perform their role?

Periodic medicals may form part of your health and wellness policy, with the emphasis of a periodic medical being early detection of a potential health problem.

Our Occupational Physician will educate your employee regarding healthy lifestyle issues, with specific recommendations on how to prevent disease and maintain good health.  Periodic medicals also give your worker the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns they may have regarding their health. This has obvious long term benefits to both the employee and employer.

  • Weight
  • Blood Pressure
  • Vision check

With the number of people in the Australian work force now over the age of 50, this has many implications on the way businesses approach how they work.
