Workplace Medicals

A full range of workplace medical assessments are available to ensure that the requirements of current legislation and industry standards are met and complied with. Industry specific medical assessments are also available. For example, such as Network Rail (RISQS) standards, London Underground (LUL) and CBH Safety Critical Workers. In addition, Medical assessments ensure that the highest standards of safety are adhered to in the workplace. Furthermore, these are crucial for those performing safety critical tasks in high-risk areas. As well as as ensuring that industry safety standards are met, Workplace Medical Assessments ensure that the workforce is of a fit and healthy standard. This reduces the risk of a work-related illness or injury and increases productivity. The lead time for all medical assessment certificates is 3-4 working days.
