Occupational Health at CBD Doctors Melbourne

  • Occupational Health Services and Workplace Injuries in Melbourne CBD

At CBD Doctors Melbourne, we can provide tailored advice for your company based on expert professional opinion. This is always by a qualified and trained Practitioner, but extends to a specialist if you are in a unique industry with a brand new position description. Not all businesses have the resources to employ internal staff or workers designated to all position descriptions so we have the expertise to advise you on what minimum standards you should consider to ensure you are doing your part.

About Occupational Health

Each workplace, role and individual is different so it’s not possible to always have a formula or internal policy for such a broad range of situations. Considerations around Occupational Health are worthwhile for any company in any industry.

We can provide tailored advice to your company based on expert professional opinion by one of our doctors or by an occupational health physician at your request.

If your company is small, just starting its health programme we can help you daily and on demand with the most competitive pricing.

Just like our small company, most aren’t large enough to have HR departments or pay large consulting fees. CBD Doctors Melbourne is a way for every employer to look after their people no matter what their size.

Occupational Health Services

  • Pre-employment Medicals

    Pre-employment medicals are increasingly an essential task in the recruiting process to identify the most suitable candidates for the specific roles you’re trying to hire for.

    At CBD Doctors Melbourne, we provide a needs-based assessment for each candidate case. Most HR managers and small to medium business owners are unaware of the dynamic differences that are required from role to role and therefore we can assist you with that advice on what’s expected from you.

    We take everyone candidate through a basic medical assessment and then proceed with role specific testing, followed by any in depth assessment that may arise from any individual risk. These may involve audiometry, spirometry, sleep studies, exercise stress testing or functional capacity testing.

    These can also be performed for employees with role specific requirements such as heavy physical work as a base part of their day-to-day activities

  • Executive Health Assessments

    A CBD Doctors Melbourne Executive Health Assessment fits in with our overall Needs-Based style of service provision. We want to leave every stone unturned in evaluating executive health, but we are not in the business of placing individuals at further risk or saying ‘yes’ to all requests and companies in the interest of simply raising earnings.

    We want to help you protect your company, the investment you have in an individual, and the continuity of your dealings long term. Lower your insurance premiums, limit time away from work and increase productivity in the most caring way possible.

    All our examinations are performed with the highest level of due diligence and we hope that this translates to a healthier workforce for your company and its staff. Enquire with us about what we can do for your Executives today.

  • Fitness for Duty

    Small injuries can be a long-term burden on your business and really dent your momentum. While you may be covered in case of injury, it is important to maintain a good rapport with your employees and demonstrate that your interests are mutually aligned.

    If you look after them while they are sick with more than just sick-pay and a work cover claim number, it should come back to you in productivity and more importantly, loyalty. This easier said than done of course, but every little bit helps.

    Making sure they are ready to go back to work while injured (at work or at home) or allowing them to perform some lighter duties can really help cover you legally, but more importantly allow you to care for your workers.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What’s involved with a Pre-Employment Medical?

    The candidate/employee will be provided with a questionnaire, which they will go through in detail with our nurse and doctor. Once this is completed any further identified or required testing will be performed. Certified reporting with all the credentials of our clinic and the consulting practitioner will be provided to the employee or management in a timely manner.

    All records will be kept on file securely and always adhering to minimum privacy and security recommendations adhered to in Australia. We are also able to work in with anyone’s required schedule provided that this is discussed prior to the consultation with our admin staff. In some case the test could be made available while the employee waits.

  • Why are Pre-Employment Medicals necessary?

    Firstly, we all want to be as informed as possible about the health and wellness of our organisation. We want to hire quality staff of high ability, efficiency and minimum overall standard of health. We can all soldier through tough periods and meet deadlines through sickness and adversity, but the health of an organisation is impacted long term if indeed our employees are forced to compromise for periods of time or even regular periods every year.

    Not only do we want to employ healthy people, but we want them to stay healthy and ultimately productive. Lesser sick days, lesser work cover claims and lesser absenteeism will increase productivity by default and protect your organisation. We want them to be met with high OH&S standards and let them know that we want to look after their health.

    Organisational culture is a huge part of this, poor overall mental health is the quiet the productivity killer and if we don’t have our finger on our company pulse on an ongoing basis we can really put undue pressure on everyone. A happy employee that is feeling looked after is an employee that will look after their employer.

    Psychological Assessments, Functional Capacity tests and Executive Health Assessments are all ways to meet best practice standards and give a lift to our organisation.

  • What to expect from your medical assessment?

    Depending on the individual and the role description, we will tailor an assessment for your employee. A questionnaire will be sent to you and this will be gone through in detail with our Practice Nurse and our Doctor to ensure a set of further test is flagged. They will then undergo on the spot and off-site testing within 2-3 hours of their arrival.

    Following up once tests and relevant summaries have arrived to our clinic, we will identify areas which may need addressing or treatment and convey these to your employee with the performance of any follow up testing or examination if something does arise.

    A third session is left as a possibility if there is any further monitoring that has been ordered as a result of the second session. A full report is written up for all interested parties to keep. On request a copy is also sent to the employees General Practitioner to have on file. Our doctors are made available to convey anything queried by their doctor as a measure of courtesy and continuity.

  • What Benefits Do Fitness for Duty Assessments offer?

    Whether it’s to show them you care, minimise your premiums or just learn about your OH&S protocols, a Fit-to-work assessment is a sound plan to any workplace injury. What may seem like a drop in the ocean of expenses is really designed for the benefits of the employee and the employer. It is always advised to double check whether it is absolutely necessary and we are happy to provide you with our recommendations and what it would cost with no obligation.
