Safety Critical Medicals

Safety Critical Medicals

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) employers must ensure that their workplaces are safe.

Workers who undertake roles where the safety of an operation may be compromised by ill health are obliged to undertake regular Safety Critical medical assessments.  This allows employers to ensure that workers are not subject to medical conditions that could impact on their capacity to perform their role.

We offer the following safety critical medicals:

  • Working at heights
  • Working in confined spaces
  • Wind turbine medicals

We are a SEQOHS-accredited private clinic
