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 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.

Result

The Project Team has published the Fitness to Work Medical Assessment Guideline. In addition, the following support materials provide information and context about this initiative:

Consultation workshops were held in Brisbane and Toowoomba during 2019 and 2020, the feedback from which was collated, reviewed and informed finalising the content of the Guideline. Members can access a recording of the Toowoomba workshop here. Implementation Workshops were also held in Brisbane and Toowoomba in May 2021.
