Pre-employment Assessments

  • To ensure that staff are fit for their job.
  • To identify new staff with health problems who may require special support or modification of duties to undertake their job successfully.
  • To identify staff who should be enrolled with the OH Service for vaccinations or periodic health monitoring to protect them in their work.

All staff are screened initially by questionnaire. Staff involved in certain work activities or those disclosing health problems on the questionnaire which may affect their fitness have to attend a clinic appointment with Dr Ian Harris or Dr Ian O’Connor for a more detailed evaluation to complete the assessment.

Health Surveillance

For some work where it is not possible to absolutely protect against health risks, Occupational Health @ Oak Tree monitors the health of all staff involved. The aim is to detect signs of problems as early as possible so that we can help the person and check whether action is needed to protect others.
