Why Carry out New Starter Health Assessments?
New Starter health assessments are a vital part of the recruitment process. They are a convenient way of:
Please note - these can only be provided once the new starter has been offered and accepted their initial job offer, in writing.
Each employee will have a confidential fitness for work statement issued to their employing company's HR or Personnel Department, outlining all the relevant information, but at the same time respecting the individual's absolute right to medical confidentiality.
For your convenience, All Safe can offer 2 ways of carrying out pre-employment assessments.
Postal New Starter Assessments
This is our most convenient and efficient paper based screening service, as it overcomes geographical difficulties and the need to see each new starter in person. It involves the employer sending the new starter a prepaid envelope and a confidential pre-employment health assessment form, graded according to risk. The new starter completes the form and returns it directly to All Safe OH & S Ltd, thus ensuring medical confidentiality is maintained. The form is then assessed within an agreed timeline and the employee is either certified as fit and further information is given if required, as outlined above; or the prospective employer is contacted to be advised that further information is required from the new starter's General Practitioner, or that a referral to an Occupational Physician is required, before a decision on fitness for employment can be given.
Face to Face New Starter Assessments
This confidential service means that All Safe OH & S Ltd's highly trained staff will come to your premises to carry out a face to face pre-employment health assessment. Depending on the person's job, the actual protocols will vary, but our baseline pre-employment health assessment includes:
Additional modules for employees who will be placed in higher risk environments include:
