Pre-Employment Examinations These examinations should be conducted prior to employment, or at least within the first 14 days of employment. The responsibility to ensure that the examination is scheduled within the prescribed deadline rests with the Human Resources personnel. The occupation’s inherent medical requirements should be directed by the relevant “Occupational Risk and Exposure Profile (OREP)” or according to the Construction regulations Annexure 3 which should be available to the examining doctor/nurse. This is to ensure that appropriate attention is paid to any medical condition relevant to the work requirements, or potential exposure to hazards. Periodic Examinations These are to be performed annually or as prescribed by the schedule established by the Occupational Medical Practitioner. Exit Examinations These are to be performed on employees that leave the service of the company, and who have been exposed to hazards during employment. These medicals should be planned timeously, such as within a week of termination of services. The reason is that unexpected findings may require further actions (such as other tests, or referrals, or even a submission to the Compensation Commissioner, if a compensatable occupational disease is identified. Note that this examination is not necessary if the last periodic medical was conducted within 6 months of the services being terminated.
