Why conduct pre-employment screening?
To protect your organisation and current employees, it is important to screen the health of prospective employees prior to the commencement of work to avoid hiring workers who may pose a health or safety risk.
What tests are recommended?
- Overall health assessment - Ensuring the potential employee is ‘fit for work’.
- Drug & alcohol testing - Identifies unsuitable candidates who may pose a safety risk. (Please refer to the comprehensive Drug & Alcohol Testing section of our website for all information related to this very important area of workplace safety.)
- Hazardous chemical exposure - It is recommended that pre-existing baseline levels of these chemicals are determined for comparison with future monitoring of the employee.
- Immunity to infectious diseases - Recommended prior to commencing work in areas such as healthcare, aged care, child care, cleaning and animal care.
