Keeping your staff well and at work

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 a PCBU (Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking) has the ‘primary care of duty’ - the primary responsibility for people’s health and safety at work. It must ensure, so far is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of its workers and any other workers it influences or directs. Part of this includes identifying and assessing risk for particular roles. Monitoring the control measures may include health monitoring.

Insurance medicals

Insurance medicals are sometimes required for life insurance, trauma insurance or income replacement insurance, depending on your general health, age and risk. Exactly what is done as part of the insurance medical depends on the insurance company and the type of insurance you are looking for. A questionnaire will generally need to be completed. This would cover your health history and general lifestyle information, followed by a medical examination. The examination is likely to include a check of eyesight, hearing, blood pressure, heart and various other functions.
