Health Assessments

Pre-Employment Health Assessments

Pre-Employment Health Assessments (PEHA) are the best way to determine if an individual’s health and fitness levels are an appropriate match for a given role and its tasks. The assessment can also identify any risks that may arise when a worker completes their duties. 

Review candidates, identify risk and rapidly recruit prospective employees.

Our pre-employment medicals offer a quality experience. Our procedures, online platforms and team of professionals allows us to deliver innovative outcomes to improve service delivery nationwide.

Did you know that a wrong hire can cost a business up to 2.5 times the salary of the employee?

•   Psychometric testing can help you find the best fit for your team
