The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) requires medical tests (before employment and periodically) for workers exposed to some specific hazards.
As an employer, you are responsible for the health of your employees.
A regular asbestos/lead medical test has to be carried out for everyone who could be at risk of exposure.
At Newcastle Health Premier lead / asbestos medicals are carried out by HSE accredited doctors.
Lead Medicals – The test takes approximately 45 minutes and you will be required to fill out a questionnaire, and undergo blood/urine test.
Asbestos Medicals – The test takes about 45 minutes where you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire which is followed by a lung function test.
Our medical practitioner will provide a certificate to confirm that the medical has been undertaken. The certificate complies with HSE guidelines and specifications. All test results are delivered to you the same day, which you need to submit with your employer.
HSE mandates an asbestos medical every two years for employees undertaking licensed asbestos work, and every three years for those undertaking notifiable non-licensed work.
