When a job requires you to be physically and mentally fit, a Pre-Employment and Drivers Fitness Medical is necessary to show that you are a good fit for the position. This is especially true for the transportation industry. Road safety is a top priority for drivers. They need to be able to react quickly to situations and have good vision and physical abilities to ensure they keep themselves and others on road safe by practising good driving etiquette.
Here at Bega Medical Centre, we offer Pre Employment and Drivers Fitness Medical so your employer can assess your suitability for the position.

For you to be effective on the job and do full justice to the role, you need to have the physical and mental capabilities required of you. For instance, if you’re a driver that handles large commercial vehicles such as trucks, buses and more, then you need to be able to be alert on road, make split second decisions and have good sensory, cognitive and motor function skills. We perform Driver Fitness Medical Assessments, which give a clear and quantitative picture of your ability to do the job.
A part of the assessment is to look at your physical and mental fitness. Conditions such as sleep trouble, chronic fatigue and other issues could interfere with your performance.
Assessing your vision is one of the key components of Pre Employment and Drivers Fitness Medical. When working with machinery or operating vehicles, your vision needs to be good to ensure you are not compromised in an way.
Alcohol or substance abuse can seriously impact your cognitive skills. Our Drug and Alcohol Screening Tests can detect the presence of any illegal substances such as cannabis, methamphetamines, amphetamines, opiates, cocaine, and benzodiazepines in one’s system.
A Pre Employment and Drivers Fitness Medical is a sure way to establish your suitability for a specific position. Since all aspects of your health and abilities are monitored and assessed, there’s no room for doubt, giving your employer a definitive answer on whether or not you’re the right choice for the job.
