Our safety critical medicals are meticulously customised to address the specific requirements of these industries, ensuring that employees meet the physical and medical criteria necessary to perform their duties safely and efficiently.

Our Safety Critical Medicals encompass a comprehensive range of assessments and tests, including:

  • Baseline health questionnaires to gather essential medical and psychological health history, providing valuable insights into an individual’s overall well-being.
  • General health assessments, measuring vital parameters such as weight, height, body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, pulse, and other relevant indicators to evaluate overall physical fitness.
  • Audiometry (hearing tests) to assess auditory function, which is particularly crucial in industries with high noise levels, ensuring clear communication and auditory awareness.
  • Respiratory function tests to evaluate lung health and assess individuals’ ability to meet the demands of safety-critical positions within manufacturing, construction, and transportation sectors.
  • Visual acuity, color vision, and peripheral vision screening to evaluate visual capabilities required for roles that demand precise visual perception, contributing to a safe working environment.
  • Dermatology assessments to address any potential skin-related concerns that may arise from specific work conditions, ensuring employees’ well-being and safety.
  • Musculoskeletal and mobility assessments to evaluate physical fitness, identify potential issues, and ensure individuals can safely perform the required tasks within Newcastle’s dynamic industries.
  • Optional additional assessments, such as drug and alcohol testing, working at height evaluations, confined space assessments, night worker assessments, and hand-arm vibration assessments (HAVs), tailored to the specific job requirements of the targeted industries.

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.
