Why does your Company Need Medical Examinations?
The main reason is to ensure the health of all your employees? Healthy employees are more productive then unhealthy employees. It will also ensure that the employer complies with the law. Various laws require regular medical examinations.
Example: A driver is appointed to deliver goods on behalf of the company. If the Company is, for example, not aware that the driver has diabetes, the Company might not be aware that the employee’s eye sight might be affected. Even worse, the employee could get a blackout while driving. This can lead to serious injury or even death. If no previous medical examination was done, the employer can be liable. A basic medical examination can avoid this liability.
If an employee sustains hearing loss because of working conditions, they can claim damages from the company. Detecting issues early can help the Company take reasonable prevention steps.
