Safety Critical Medicals

Keeping the workforce happy, healthy & safe

A safety critical role is where the ill health of an individual may compromise their ability to undertake a task defined as safety critical and thereby pose a significant risk to the health and safety of others. We recommend that a safety critical medical should be undertaken before a new employee starts working in their new role.

We suggest that the medical should be repeated every 3 years or earlier if the employee develops a new medical problem which may affect their ability to perform all duties of their role or following long term sickness absence.

A Safety Critical Medical can include any of the following tests depending on your risk assessments:

  • A screening questionnaire to include hearing, vision, lung function, vibration, medication review, skin, substance exposure.
  • A medical examination by a nurse or doctor.
  • Urinalysis
  • Height weight BMI
  • Blood pressure
  • ECG
  • Audiometry
  • Visual testing
  • Spirometry
  • HAVS Examination
  • Mobility assessment
  • Fitness test - Chester Step test.
  • Blood or urine tests to detect exposure levels if required.
