Comprehensive Safety Critical Medicals in Kent

The precise requirements for safety critical medicals may vary depending on the specific job responsibilities of the employee or prospective employee. Nevertheless, our comprehensive medical assessments encompass a standardised set of tests tailored to evaluate an individual’s health and suitability for safety-critical roles. These assessments include:

  • Conducting a thorough baseline health questionnaire to establish the individual’s medical and psychological health history.
  • Performing a comprehensive general health assessment, encompassing measurements of weight, height, body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, pulse.
  • Administering audiometry (hearing test) to assess the individual’s auditory function, particularly crucial for roles where clear communication and awareness of auditory signals are paramount.
  • Evaluating respiratory function through specialised tests to ensure the individual’s lung health aligns with the demands of safety-critical positions.
  • Assessing visual acuity, color vision, and peripheral vision to gauge the individual’s visual capabilities, critical for roles that require precise visual perception.
  • Conducting a thorough dermatology assessment to examine the individual’s skin health and identify any potential issues that may affect safety-critical tasks.
  • Performing a comprehensive musculoskeletal and mobility assessment to evaluate the individual’s physical fitness and mobility, ensuring they can safely execute the required tasks.
  • Offering optional additional assessments such as drug and alcohol testing, working at height evaluation, confined space assessment, night worker assessment, and hand-arm vibration assessment (HAVs) based on the specific job requirements.

Although not required for a pass, we can offer urinalysis tests in these medicals. If you would like to add this, please let us know when booking in.

Our team of experienced healthcare professionals is dedicated to delivering meticulous safety critical medicals, offering professional and impartial advice throughout the entire process. We prioritise the fitness and well-being of individuals employed in safety-critical roles across various industries, including manufacturing, farming, and construction. Rest assured, our assessments adhere to regulatory standards and industry best practices, enabling you to maintain a highly skilled and secure workforce.
