Pre-employment Medical

A pre-employment check appointment is an appointment conducted before beginning a job. It is conducted to ensure that a person is fit to take on the role and has no underlying health condition that could impede their ability to perform their duties. The results of the assessment will be used to determine whether someone is suitable to take up the job.

What to Expect During a Pre-Employment Check Appointment

During a pre-employment check appointment, individuals can anticipate a series of routine tests and assessments.

  1. Initially, a thorough review of your medical history is conducted, including any previous illnesses or surgeries.

  3. In certain cases, additional tests may be carried out, such as blood tests, hearing and vision checks or screenings for specific job-related risks.
