SubUrban Icon Pre-employment

For any business to thrive, it is absolutely essential to employ a healthy workforce. This is especially true when welcoming a new employee into the workforce.

Here’s where our pre-employment checkup procedure steps in and helps you ensure that the candidate is healthy enough to perform the set of tasks for which they are being hired.

Let’s look at a few examples.

We’ll begin with the airline industry. Here, candidates are made to undergo the following tests

  • Chest X-ray
  • Vision tests
  • Hearing tests (audiometry)
  • Basic pathology tests

Another example is the food industry. Here, the workers are tested to ensure that they are free of the following health issues:

  • Typhoid
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Jaundice
  • an array of skin ailments

For jobs that involve driving or operating vehicles, candidates are screened for

  • hypertension
  • diabetes
  • vision tests
  • basic pathology tests

Pre-employment check-ups act as the first line of defence against potential health-related mishaps and therefore, help boost efficiency. They also help in detecting past medical conditions such as TB, which may not have been mentioned by the candidate during the interview. All these factors help employers make informed decisions during the recruitment process.


Candidate’s Safety

New applicants should be free from medical conditions that could result in sudden incapacitation that can lead to accidents, especially for health and safety sensitive jobs. Examples of such jobs are drivers, pilots and heavy machinery operators.

Candidate’s Health

Pre-employment checkups are a means to establish baseline health data against which the future health status of the employee can be compared. It is also a means of identifying existing medical conditions, including contagious diseases.

Candidate’s Productivity and Efficiency

Employers can rest assured that new recruits are free from any medical conditions which could otherwise compromise productivity.


The cost of medical treatment is escalating. These pre-employment examinations help assess the financial risks involved for employers who provide full and unlimited medical coverage.
