Starting in the Right Direction
Many companies require prospective employees to have screening tests done prior to commencing work. Screening tests can be for a range of conditions and may include any of the following:
- Illegal drugs
- Heavy metals including lead and cadmium
- Overall health [cholesterol and glucose levels]
- Immunity to infectious diseases such as Hepatitis A or B, and Q-Fever
Employees can visit any Australian Clinical Labs collection centre to have their specimens collected. All they need to take with them is a Clinical Labs pathology request form.
