How does a pre-placement health screening work?

Our pre-placement health screening can be offered to employees annually, or on a regular basis.

The employee will complete a comprehensive questionnaire along with their signed consent form, designed to assess the health of an employee and used to determine their suitability for a role they have been offered. The assessment is reviewed by our experienced occupational health nurses, highlighting any health issues that are likely to impact the employee’s ability to fulfill the role.

The final report will either suggest the employee is fit for work, or likely to be unfit. Where the latter is indicated, a further and more detailed assessment may be required, which D4Health can facilitate.


Frequently Asked Questions

When should I consider health screening my staff?

Pre-employment screening is an effective method for reducing the likelihood of employees experiencing work-related illness or injury later in their employment. It can be useful for all employees regardless of role or industry. However, you must have already provided the offer of employment before conducting pre-placement screening to ensure you are compliant with employment legislation, otherwise, it is likely to be interpreted as discrimination on health grounds.
