We provide thorough Safety Critical Medicals in Wales, as well as the rest of the UK.
No matter the industry or size of your business, we’re here to lend our expertise and ensure your workforce is as healthy as can be.
Safety critical medicals are especially relevant to those carrying out safety critical tasks. The term “safety critical work” is defined as: “Where the ill health of an individual may compromise their ability to undertake a task defined as safety critical, thereby posing a significant risk to the health and safety of others.”
Examples of safety critical roles include scaffolders, plant operators and employees working at heights. It’s important to make sure that safety critical workers are not suffering from medical conditions, or undergoing any medical treatment which is likely to cause sudden loss of consciousness or incapacity, impairment of awareness, concentration, balance or coordination, or significant limitation of mobility.
We also carry out overseas medicals, firefighter medicals and wind turbine medicals.
Duty of care
Under the 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act, employers have a duty of care to prevent the ill-health of their workers. A medical, such as a fitness-for-task health check as identified in the national industry standards for occupational health, would go a long way towards ensuring these legal requirements are met.
