Health Assessments

 

Trident Medical Services Before a member of staff is appointed it's important to assess if they are fit to undertake the role. This is relevant for every industry and every job description. This can be brought into sharper focus in high-risk industries.

Some employers may find they need advice for staff with pre-existing medical conditions, disabilities or mental health issues. It can be harder to deal with these situations if no health screening was not undertaken when the employee was recruited. Our new starter assessments ensure that the relevant questions are asked for their role before a new member of staff is employed. This ensures that the appropriate risk assessments, safe systems of work and job adjustments can be considered in order to meet the requirements of employment law. We can assist you in meeting the terms of the Equality Act 2010 by recommending the appropriate adjustments needed to support individuals' characteristics. Asking the right questions up-front also helps you, as an employer, assess whether your new starter can carry out their role. This can prevent significant management issues and expense further down the line.

New starter assessments can also include the relevant screening to use as a base-line for ongoing health surveillance.

Drug and alcohol screening can be included in new starter assessments, upon request.

We can also offer tailored assessments to ensure other personnel (such as contractors) are fit to carry out their role on your premises to meet your health requirements.

Assessment is carried out by our highly qualified and experienced occupational health staff.  New starter assessments can be done by physical assessment or via a screening questionnaire, if appropriate.

We can offer new starter assessments at your own site, at our offices, via our mobile clinic, via telephone or via Skype or at an alternative location, whichever is most appropriate.

Employers have a duty of care to protect the safety of their workplace under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1984. This includes ensuring that employees are not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Many employers recognise the importance of having a drug and alcohol policy, particularly those working in a safety-related or safety-critical environment.  We can advise you how to establish, run and manage this policy.

In conjunction with our laboratory partner (certified to ISO17025) we provide pre-employment, random and for-cause drug and alcohol screening. We can also offer a 24-hour call-out service.

Our qualified occupational physicians are competent medical review officers who are trained to assess the significance of possible drug or alcohol misuse and co-ordinate counselling and rehabilitation where needed.

We can offer drug and alcohol screening at your own site, at our offices, via our mobile clinic or at an alternative location, whichever is most appropriate.
