Employee Health Screening

Value your Employees

Employee Health Screening can be carried out to proactively protect an employee’s health or in compliance with a legal requirement (see Biological Monitoring).

Pathology testing incorporating into an organisation’s staff welfare and health maintenance policies can be valuable and cost effective and is a good way of ensuring the long-term productivity of your most valuable asset.

Employee health screening can be simple, involving one or two tests, or more complex involving a range of tests and a physical examination. The type of screening program is determined by the company in conjunction with the needs of their employees. These range from a general check up to an extended check-up and ultimately a full pathology health screen.

Some of the medical problems and/or risk factors that may be detected by pathology testing are:
