Meet Dr. Andrew Jeremijenko, our Acting Medical Director at Capital Health Screening Centre and watch as he explains the necessity of good occupational health practices in the simplest terms.

What is Occupational Health Screening?

Occupational Health screenings are a list of mandatory or non-mandatory medical tests conducted by employers to ensure the good health and welfare of their workforce. These screenings are also used to screen employees for pre-existing health conditions that may place the candidate, co-workers or customers at risk as they perform their jobs.

We provide a wide range of services under our occupational health screening programs including pre-employment and post-employment screenings, bespoke workplace health programs and sickness absence management to name a few.

What Does the Occupational Health Screening Involve?

Occupational Health Screening includes blood tests and physical or fitness assessments related to the employee’s occupation. This screening may be necessary for employees working in the areas of transportation, food, chemicals and others. A full range of medical and fitness assessments such as Electrocardiogram (ECG), audiometry, spirometry and more are offered for new and existing employees.
