Legislative medical for rail workers who perform non-safety critical work and whose health and fitness does not impact directly on the rail network. However, they are required to protect their own safety and that of other rail workers. Conducted in a TruHealth Solutions clinic this service includes:
- Vision Testing
- Medical History Questionnaire
- Musculoskeletal Screen
- Drug and Alcohol Screen.
A rail safety workers medical is a medical specifically designed for rail safety workers under the National Standard for Health Assessment of Rail Safety Workers. The rail safety workers medical forms part of the Transport (Rail Safety) Act 2010.
This act requires rail transport operators to manage the risks posed from worker ill health by implementing a health and fitness management program. This program ensures that rail safety worker health is at the required level to safely perform the job.
All medical information collected at the assessment is confidential, with an employer only receiving the summary of the potential workers fitness. If they are deemed unfit for Category 3 work, they are unfit to perform any rail safety work.
