Medical Assessments

Medical assessments for a whole range of needs, carried out by the Occupational Health Physician or the Occupational Health Nurse Advisor.

Assess Suitability

Initial Medical Assessments for New Starters

These reduce the risk of mismatching person to task, and demonstrate your compliance with legislation such as the Health & Safety at Work Act, the Disability Discrimination Act, Working Time Regulations and many others, including specific industry standards.

Baseline medical assessments and screening tests, eg. Audiometry, Spirometry and Vision Screening can be added when required under regulations.

Audiometry

Occupational Audiometry is a screening technique used to detect early damage to hearing resulting from exposure to noise. Identifying any damage allows for follow-up remedial action in the workplace and if necessary a medical referral.

Spirometry

After completing a general respiratory questionnaire, lung function tests are carried out using a Spirometer. Results are discussed with the employee and a summary report of the results will be forwarded to the employer. If any abnormalities are detected, a referral will be made to the company Medical Officer or the employee’s GP.

Vision Screening

In industry, a comprehensive screening programme can provide a general overview of employee’s visual disorders, detecting those where corrective action should be taken. Vision Screening Tests are a means of identifying individuals with defective vision who need a full eyesight test. Using the Keystone VS-II, we carry out fourteen tests of nine visual functions, not just visual acuity alone.

Hand Arm Vibration

Employees whose hands are regularly exposed to vibration may suffer from damage to the tissues of hands and arms, which causes the symptoms collectively known as HAVS (Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome).

Possibly, up to 1 in 10 people who work regularly with vibrating tools may develop HAVS.

Under The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 an employer has a duty to assess vibration risks to health and safety. The employer must eliminate vibration risk at source, or reduce to the lowest reasonable practicable level and to provide information and training for employees on vibration risks and control measures.
