Comprehensive Safety Critical Medicals in the East Midlands
The exact requirements for safety critical medicals may vary depending on the specific job responsibilities of the employee or prospective employee. However, our medical assessments encompass a standard set of tests designed to evaluate an individual’s health and fitness for safety-critical roles. These tests include:
- Baseline health questionnaire to establish the individual’s medical and psychological health history.
- General health assessment, including measurements of weight, height, body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, pulse, and urinalysis for blood, protein, glucose, and ketones.
- Audiometry (hearing test) to assess the individual’s auditory function, particularly crucial for roles where clear communication and awareness of auditory signals are essential.
- Respiratory function tests to evaluate lung function, ensuring the individual’s respiratory health aligns with the demands of safety-critical positions.
- Visual acuity, color vision, and peripheral vision screening to assess the individual’s visual capabilities, critical for roles that require precise visual perception.
- Dermatology assessment to examine the individual’s skin health and identify any potential issues that may impact safety-critical tasks.
- Musculoskeletal and mobility assessment to evaluate the individual’s physical fitness and mobility, ensuring they can safely perform the required tasks.
- 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), depending on the specific job requirements.
Our team of experienced healthcare professionals is dedicated to conducting thorough safety critical medicals, providing professional and impartial advice throughout the process. We ensure the fitness and wellbeing of individuals in safety-critical roles within a wide range of industries, including distribution, farming, and manufacturing.
