Medical Assessment Guideline

A Guideline for pre-employment and periodic medical examinations for the Queensland Natural Gas Exploration & Production Industry.

Project / Initiative

Fitness to Work – Medical Assessment Guideline – develop and implement a Guideline for pre-employment and periodic medical examinations for the Queensland Natural Gas Exploration & Production Industry.

Challenge

Medical screening and proactive medical management of workers’ health reduces health and safety risks in the industry.  Currently however, requirements for Fitness to Work medical assessments vary across the industry.  Many individuals moving between companies in the industry undertake numerous pre-employment and periodic medical examinations.

Solution

Develop a Guideline to help member companies to set up Fitness to Work medical assessments and associated processes.  It is hoped that this Guideline will promote a consistent, efficient and cost effective industry approach which will, in turn, lead to improved health across the workforce.

Coming Next

  • A draft Guideline is being prepared for industry consultation.
