About Fitness for Work
The occupational health practitioner must be familiar with various types of work. It is vital that the worker understands the purpose of the medical assessment. All employees should be screened before duty. This will help protect the employee and the employer. A great example is if you look at a driver. The driver might have epileptic fits. If the fits occur while driving, the driver can get seriously injured. The driver can also cause a major accident. Upon inspection, it will be determined if the employer took reasonable steps to ensure that the driver was fit to operate the vehicle.
An employee fitness certificate will ensure that you appoint the right person for the job. The same goes for almost every other position. Imagine employing a person with fits to work on heights. This can be very dangerous.
Determining Fitness for Work
To determine if an employee is fit for duty, various tests can be performed. Most companies will start with a baseline medical.
Employee Baseline Medical Tests:
1. Physical Examination
2. Urine Test
3. Height and Weight
4. Blood pressure & Pulse
5. Glucose Test
6. (LFT) Lung Function Test
7. Vision Screening
8. Hearing Test
The above tests will be a great indication if the person will be fit for various jobs. In some cases, the employee can’t get a fitness certificate unless further tests are done. It is the OHS practitioner’s responsibility to inform management. There is a provision in the MHSA that permit an employee to appeal the findings.
