Pre Placement (On-Boarding) Medicals
The Equality Act makes it clear that employers have to be very
careful about asking health related questions either prior to or at interview.
This is due to the fact that there remains some prejudice and ignorance about
health conditions and the effect on work especially in relation to mental
health. The pre placement health screening process can now only be undertaken
AFTER a job offer has been made. Workers Health can carry out a Pre Placement
Paper Screen or Pre Placement Medical, depending on your requirements.
The purpose of
pre-placement/baseline health check is:
To ensure that the prospective
employee is medically fit to fulfil the duties and responsibilities of the post
with a view to making such adjustments as may be necessary
To assess whether the
proposed post may adversely affect the prospective employee’s health and make
recommendations to reduce the risk if necessary
To record health
information as a starting point for monitoring exposure to health hazards e.g.
a hearing test on an employee working in a noise hazard area. This type of test
is called a baseline test as it is establishing health levels before exposure
