Illness and injury from work-related events can have serious adverse impacts on the earning capacity and financial security and welfare of the affected person and their family.
Pre-employment medical health assessments are aimed at determining whether an individual’s medical and physical condition is suited to their proposed occupation.
Mismatched workers and jobs can result in disastrous outcomes. Despite the best preventative efforts of workers and their employer’s accidents and misadventures can happen and it is important that such health events are managed expeditiously, accurately and completely to help the affected worker get back to optimal productivity and earning capacity.
Employers are obligated under the law to have insurance policies in place for just such contingencies. In most cases, the costs of the medical management of the work-related illness or injury is covered under this policy.
