Pre-Employment Medicals

Pre-Employment Medicals

Pre-Employment Medical assessments allow companies to have their potential employees reviewed in to order to ascertain their suitability for a specific role and any reasonable adaptations that might be required. Whilst the checks involved will vary by the position, generally a Pre-Employment Medical assessment involves a detailed health questionnaire, a variety of medical examinations, and medical assessment.

Hearing Checks and Audiometry

Hearing Checks and Audiometry

Being exposed to loud noise, as well as other causes, can affect your hearing. For noise the louder it is, the more damage it can cause. In some cases it can lead to permanent hearing loss. Once your ears get damaged by noise exposure there is no cure. High noise levels can also interfere with communications in the workplace. Identifying noise as a problem depends on how loud the noise is and how long you are exposed to it.

Hearing Checks and Audiometry provided at Mungret Medical Centre allow for hearing screening to be performed in our calibrated and sound insulated audio booth.

Every applicant for a medical fitness certificate is required to be medically examined by an Approved Doctor and no other medical practitioner may carry out medical examinations of seafarers.

Mantoux Testing (TB Screening)

Mantoux Testing (TB Screening)

The Mantoux Test or also known as Tuberculin Skin Test (TST) and Mendel–Mantoux test, is a tool for screening for tuberculosis (TB) amongst other indications.

It requires two visits to Mungret Medical Centre, first to administer the tuberculin and then to read it 48 hours to 72 hours later. The first appointment is not given on a Thursday, however all other days during opening hours can be used for the first appointment. If the test is not read within the 48 hour to 72 hour window a re-test will be needed.

QuantiFERON Testing (TB Screening)

QuantiFERON Testing (TB Screening)

QuantiFERON testing is a set of blood tests, taken at one visit, often required for educational and work placements. Similar to the Mantoux text there are several indications for QuantiFERON testing, and the test itself should be considered with other investigations and symptoms.

The blood test must be taken in the morning, booked in advance, and can be taken any day during opening days.

Vision Screening

A comprehensive screening programme can provide a general overview of employee’s visual disorders, detecting those where corrective action should be taken. Vision screening tests are a means of identifying individuals with defective vision who need a full eyesight test.

  • Detecting ill-health effects at an early stage, so employers can introduce better controls to prevent them getting worse;
  • Providing data to help employers evaluate health risks;
  • Enabling employees to raise concerns about how work affects their health;
  • Highlighting lapses in workplace control measures, therefore providing invaluable feedback to the risk assessment;
  • Providing an opportunity to reinforce training and education of employees (eg on the impact of health effects and the use of protective equipment).
Strength Testing

Strength Testing

Mungret Medical Centre has a range of objective physical testing equipment. These include grip strength measuring, allowing a measure of maximal grip strength, and back strength testing, similarly assessing back strength.
