Ensuring a Safe Workforce

Our pre-employment medical checks help you hire the best candidates who meet the health and safety demands of the role, so you don’t run into problems down the line. Selecting candidates who meet these inherent requirements forms the building blocks for a sustainable and effective injury prevention and workforce health strategy.

Assessments are conducted by experienced physiotherapists with a profound understanding of the body in occupational workplace settings. Leveraging their expertise, we help organisations lower injury risks, improve safety, and ensure candidates are fit for job demands.
