What Are Safety Critical Medicals?

Safety critical medicals are required for organisations which involve high risk tasks, which need to be carried out by an employee who is physically and mentally fit for the role. These can include:

  • Working at height
  • Fork lift truck operator
  • Working in a confined space
  • Offshore workers
  • Fire fighters
  • Construction workers
  • Working in extreme temperatures

As an employer you have a duty of care to ensure that your employees are fit for work. You must make sure that any underlying health conditions are taken into account and accommodations made, if required.

Safety critical medicals should be carried out before an employee commences work and reassessed on an annual basis in order to ensure safe working practices. The medical will include a comprehensive questionnaire, musculoskeletal assessment, vision, cardiovascular assessment, urine analysis, lung function and hearing tests.
