About Course

Our safety critical assessment consists of a range of tests, including:

  • Baseline health questionnaire to establish any current or previous medical/psychological health history
  • General health assessment (BMI, blood pressure, pulse, urinalysis for blood and proteins, finger prick test for glucose & cholesterol)
  • Audiometry (hearing) test
  • Visual acuity, colour vision and peripheral vision assessment
  • Dermatology (skin) assessment

Depending on the job requirements, additional assessments such as drug and alcohol tests, working at height, night worker, HAV, or confined space assessments may be included. The medical typically takes up to 60 minutes to complete and is required annually to maintain the certificate of fitness.

Main Benefits

  • Ensures that employees are medically fit to undertake safety-critical work, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.
  • Identifies any health conditions that may affect an employee’s ability to carry out their job safely and provides appropriate support to manage these conditions.
  • Increases employee confidence and morale by providing reassurance that their health and safety is a priority in the workplace.
  • Helps to reduce absenteeism and staff turnover by ensuring that employees are physically and mentally capable of carrying out their work.

Ensuring Regulatory Compliance

The Safety Critical Assessment service is essential for organisations to comply with the requirements set forth by the HSWA-1974. This legislation places a legal duty on employers to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of their employees and the public. It specifically emphasises the importance of competence in safety-critical roles. By conducting comprehensive assessments, we help you meet the legal obligations outlined in this act, ensuring that individuals performing safety-critical tasks are fit, competent, and capable of carrying out their duties safely and effectively.
