Pre-employment medicals are often very important for business and employees alike. Why?
Put simply, healthy workers = healthy organisations = healthy business performance.
Evidence shows that investing in the health and safety of your employees can boost the health of your business.
A pre-employment medical assessment screens individuals for factors that may limit their ability to safely perform their job and avoid injury. It is therefore often best for the employee and best for the business if pre-employment medicals are undertaken. It is a small investment that can minimise the risk of someone undertaking work when they are not fit to perform that work, or capable of effectively performing certain tasks.
