The medical assessment includes looking at your musculoskeletal system (muscles and bones), cardio-pulmonary system (heart and lungs), a look at your ears, eyes, mouth, review of skin, veins and abdomen (stomach). The assessment takes about 30 minutes to complete, however please allow up to an hour for your booking, which may include filling in paperwork and other tests such as a urine sample, hearing test, or functional assessment.
The functional assessment is conducted by a highly skilled assessor who will assess your ability to perform the tasks associated with the position you have applied for. This may include lifting, carrying, pushing/pulling, working at different postures and hand skill testing. You may be asked to perform a step test to assess your cardiovascular fitness for job matching. The assessor will also check your blood pressure, heart rate and flexibility during the assessment. The assessment can take up to an hour to complete, and sometimes longer if a full medical assessment is being undertaken at the same time.
