Future employers often want to check if you have any potential health problems when they choose to hire you. Although it may feel like a burden, it’s important to understand your medical assessment is required not just to measure the risks for the employer, it also delivers you confidence and peace of mind as you start your new role.
A pre-employment medical confirms you are fit and capable of carrying out your new job safely, and contributes to the safety of your workplace by ensuring all staff are at a minimum bill of health. Typical pre-employment medical assessments start with your height and weight, your body mass index (BMI), your blood pressure and pulse. Often, your assessment will include a full physical examination of your heart, lungs, abdomen and musculoskeletal systems. This is designed to pick up on anything that might need attention before working in conditions that put stress on the body, such as using heavy machinery or hot conditions.
