Not all Occupational Health Service Providers are Created Equal

When you’re on the hunt for an occupational health service provider, one of the obvious ways to compare the different business offerings is price.

But, a cheaper price should not be the only step in identifying a provider for your business.

It’s important that you have the whole picture when you’re weighing up your options – being aware of the benefits of each offering and really understanding what you’re getting for your money is a much better way to find the right pre-employment medical provider and ensure you’re not being hit with hidden costs or shortcuts that will be detrimental in the long run.

There are several ways that providers might operate to compensate for the initial low price they are selling in order to get your business.

What should you be looking for in an Online Portal?

We’re currently in the midst of peak technology disruption – everywhere you look, another industry is being advanced by technology and data, and the occupational health space is no exception.

In today’s increasingly digital world, it makes sense that many companies are looking for occupational health providers who offer a digital solution to streamline their service for their clients. As a result, many providers have started to develop online portals, but it’s important to realise that just because a provider offers an online program, doesn’t mean it’s right for your business.

Given this is a relatively new space in the occupational health world, it’s helpful to know what you should be looking for from a business when it comes to their technology offering, so here’s a quick rundown.

Pre-employment Medical Turn Around Times
Pre-Employment Medical Assessment Book Brisbane Sydney Melbourne Perth

For many companies, their employees are their greatest asset. Great employees lead to great business outcomes, not to mention have a positive impact on their workplace culture.

Injuries or reduced productivity can significantly impact a business both financially and operationally. Pre-employment screening can help you with hiring healthy and physically capable employees and is critical risk management process for any business.

When incorporated into your recruitment strategy, pre-employment assessments can improve safety performance by screening candidates before they are employed, to best determine those most physically suitable for a given role within your organisation. Pre-Employment Medical exams are a common requirement for many high risk industry job roles such as mining, oil, gas, construction and logistics.

In most cases a pre-employment includes a written health questionnaire and a series of medical tests and examinations designed to test a range of the body’s functions and abilities, relevant to work place demands.

A pre-employment medical  may include, but is not limited to:

Pre-employment medicals can be tailored to suit the requirement of your organisation and address specific physical or health concerns relevant to a given work environment. Medical screening can be incorporated into a pre-employment assessment to support Company policies such as Alcohol and Other Drugs (Drug and Alcohol Testing).

Within Australia, there are a number of Industry specific Government bodies that regulate base line health testing, and periodic health surveillance, for a given jurisdiction. For more information about Health Surveillance Testing please click here.

Legislative Requirements and Resources

KINNECT can help you meet your legislative requirements, by incorporating relevant pre-employment medical tests into the pre employment process, and reporting results to relevant government departments.

Is there a Cheaper Alternative to a Pre-Employment Medical?

KINNECT recognise that organisations are typically comprised of two distinct work groups (that is white collar and blue collar employees). KINNECT also appreciate that traditional Pre-Employment Medicals for white collar employees may not provide your organisation with significant value with regards to risk mitigation and/or return on investment, rather result in unnecessary expenditure, given the minimal health risk associated with the performance of such roles.

It is for this reason that KINNECT have developed ‘SmartHealth’, an online medical health questionnaire which has been designed to assess the health risks of non-manual employees across an organisation quickly and cost effectively.  KINNECT’s ‘SmartHealth’ survey allows low risk employees to undergo an online health screen that is quick, comprehensive, user friendly and secure.  The results from a ‘SmartHealth’ screen are instant and will allow you to assess whether further investigation or a full comprehensive medical and/or functional assessment is required.
