Medicals for industry and business
Employers have an increasing responsibility to meet ever-changing legislative requirements designed to ensure the safety, health and well-being of their workforce.
Staying compliant with directives, standards and regulations means providing the proper medical surveillance, testing, screening and vaccinations to ensure your workforce's health is maintained and protected.
It can be a time consuming and complex task, which is why more and more companies are turning to work health experts such as Express Medicals to oversee the medical processes required to meet their employee health obligations.
Pre-employment / Pre-placement medicals and questionnaires
Express Medicals provides tailor-made medical examinations and questionnaires that are designed to gather the critical information about an individual's health, in accordance with the Equality Act, as part of a company's recruitment process.
Job and task specific medicals
Every job role presents potential health risks to employees. Medical examinations provided by Express Medicals will ensure problems such as skin irritation, hearing loss or hand arm vibration syndrome are identified as soon as possible - for fast rectification - whether an employee is on-site, office based or out on the road.
