Invest in your Workforce/Employee Health with Pre-Employment Medical Assessments

Are you an employer? Are you looking for your next hire or best fit for your growing team? Have you considered a work health assessment screening process to ensure that you are not only considering the qualifications and experience of your future employees, but also their overall health and fitness?

At Lake Health Group we provide timely pre-employment medical screenings conducted by allied health professionals to assist you to make informed hiring decisions, reduce healthcare costs, and foster a healthier and more productive workforce. We deliver a fast, easy and high-quality service by providing a quick turnaround for bookings, appointments and finalised reports.

The assessment process involves a range of assessments, which can be tailored to meet the demands of your workplace. A typical assessment may include:

  • Medical History Review: identifying any pre-existing medical conditions, previous Workcover claims or injuries which may impact an employee’s ability to work or impact their job performance.
  • Hearing, Vision and Lung Function assessments: assessing sensory abilities for positions where these are crucial and can be impacted by long-term employment in industrial roles.
  • Psychological Assessments: screening questionnaires which evaluate mental and emotional wellbeing to ensure a good fit for the role and your workplace.
  • Drug and Alcohol Testing: ensuring a drug-free workplace and safe environment.
  • Physical Examinations: tailored to your workplaces demands. Can include aerobic fitness, functional screen of specific movements/activities, muscle strength and endurance, and lifting capacity.

The following benefits of pre-employment medical screenings will assist you in deciding whether it’s an investment to consider for your business:

  1. Boosted Productivity
  • By ensuring that your new employees are physically and mentally fit for their roles, you can anticipate higher productivity through improved job performance and overall higher productivity, as well as fewer sick days and absenteeism.
  1. Improved Employee Morale and Culture
  • Committing to caring about your employee’s health and safety, demonstrated through pre-employment medical screening and reviews, can display to your team that their health and wellbeing is a priority. Subsequently your team is more likely to be engaged and satisfied with their work.
  1. Cost Savings
  • Pre-employment medical screening can help identify candidates with existing health concerns or injuries which may impact their ability to work. With healthcare costs being a significant concern for employers, the screening process can assist in potentially reducing costs by identifying potential concerns early in the hiring process.
  1. Compliance with Regulations
  • Pre-employment medical screenings are required by law in many industries. Ensuring your business/company complies with these regulations assists in building trust with your employees and external stakeholders and helps avoid legal issues. It also takes the stress out of the process of ongoing medical review requirements.
