Employment Medicals and Tests
Our doctors, nurses and allied health professionals offer a coordinated employment medical service.
Standard Pre-Employment Medical
This takes the form of a medical questionnaire and a physical examination. The physical examination includes a sight test (including colour blindness), cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal and ENT examinations and a general musculoskeletal examination.
KRMC's Functional Physical Assessment (below) offers a more advanced musculoskeletal examination.
Functional Physical Assessment
Our Functional Physical Assessment focuses on the cause of most workers’ compensation claims: musculoskeletal injuries. These injuries can arise because an employee is not physically suited to the role - typically a manual handling role - for which he/she has been employed. By ensuring a Functional Physical Assessment is carried out, an employer not only protects the prospective employee from injury but is also less likely to be faced with unforeseen costs which can arise when an employee is injured - including costs associated with increased premiums, recruitment of extra staff, a loss in production and the costs of ongoing medical treatment. This Assessment is carried out by one of KRMC's Physiotherapists and is recommended for employees who engage in repetitive physical work, such as bending, twisting, carrying and reaching.
Following any injury, KRMC® Rehab, also run by KRMC's Physiotherapists in our dedicated rehab gym and external hydrotherapy pool, is the perfect service for getting employees back to work. Click here to read more about KRMC Rehab.
