Pre-Employment
Medical Checks

You can’t judge a book by its cover!

A pre-employment medical check is an increasingly important part of the employment process and offers you, as the employer, the opportunity to find out more information about a potential future employee’s health and wellbeing.

We provide individual, one-to-one pre-employment medical checks of prospective staff members for companies and organisations. These checks take between 45 and 60 minutes per person and serve as a baseline for monitoring that new staff member’s health throughout the term of their employment with you.

Results available within 48 hours

Our consultants will provide you with a verbal report immediately, with written reports provided within 1 to 2 working days. An exit employment medical check is also available on request.

AT YOUR PLACE OR OURS

Our Pre-Employment Medical Checks can be undertaken at one of our six regional offices (Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin) or our Health Consultant will come to your workplace.

Pre-Employment Medical Checks

The following checks are available as part of our Pre-Employment Medical Checks

Lung function

We use an electronic spirometer to measure lung function with an instant result, which will be discussed with the participant. The test takes approximately 3–5 minutes.

 

Blood pressure

We will use either a small electronic device or the more traditional manual equipment to measure blood pressure. If possible, participants should wear loose clothing so we can put the blood pressure cuff above the elbow.

BMI (Body Mass Index)

This is calculated using weight and height measurements. It is a useful assessment tool in identifying risk factors for heart disease and other health-related problems.

 

Vision screening

Tests include near and far acuity (short and long-sightedness), stereopsis (depth perception), colour vision, night vision and peripheral vision.

Hearing

We test hearing to the Approved Code of Practice for Noise Management. This test takes approximately 10 minutes, and requires a reasonably quiet environment.

 

Range of motion assessment

This is useful in establishing the range of movement the participant is able to complete in order to ensure he or she will be able to carry out the physical requirements of the position applied for.
