Employers today want to know whether the worker is likely to have any physical issues following employment and whether they can provide the best quality of work for the role.

A generic test may not address this, but a task-specific test will – along with a comprehensive declaration (medical history taking and questionnaire).

A good interpretation of the findings, which meets the employer’s requirements, and commenting on the sub-tasks specific to each role, makes the complete assessment.

NN Occupational Health has been a proudly founded and owned South Australian business working with other local and national companies for over 25 years, specialising in pre-employment medical assessments (physical functional capacity and job matching) and associated testing (drug, alcohol, hearing, and lung function), as well as providing ergonomic assessment of the workplace and on-site manual handling training.

Now, this is more important than ever, as we rebuild our workforce going forwards.
