Pre-Employment Medicals and Occupational Medicine
Pre-Employment medical assessments have become a vital part of recruitment for a number of companies. These assessments allow the company to establish if a potential employee has any underling health issues which may effect the ability to safely perform an employment position which they are being considered for.
Our Pre-Employment medicals are customised to suit the companies requirements, the type of work employees will be conducting and we design specialised protocol's to be created within the companies guidelines.

Drug and Alcohol Screening
Utilising our qualified assessors, a urine drug screen (UDS) can be conducted as part of a Pre-employment medical, en masse, individually, or on a "random" or 'for cause" basis. e.g. following a work related injury or accident.
An onsite screen shows an instant non-negative or negative result for muliple classes of drugs . In the event a test is positive the company has the option to send the test to the laboratory for further confirmation. We expect to have these results returned within 24 hours.
All testing is in accordance with the Australian Standards: AS/NZ4308 & 4706
Early Intervention Model – We prefer an early intervention approach seeing a person as close as possible to the time of injury or sickness.
Stay At Work Vs Early Return – our aim is to reduce unnecessary lost time injuries with a focus on stay at work outcomes. This is enhanced by our unique onsite medical response (OMR) service.
Efficient Management – By use of clinical milestones and a multi disciplinary approach.
