Occupational health

Who needs occupational health services (company doctor)?

If you employ a worker in an organised workplace, you need an occupational health service (company doctor).

My employer does not have a contract with an occupational doctor and has sent me for an aptitude test.

Only the employer can refer a worker for an occupational health assessment, which is why the employer must contract a company doctor. The employer must pay the fee for the examination.

I'm going on an NQR (National Qualifications Register) course, can you do my aptitude test?

The OKJ course requires an aptitude test, which only an "occupational health centre" is entitled to carry out.

How much does the medical examination cost?

Each of our contracted partners receives an individual quote, taking into account the services required and needed

Is an aptitude test carried out at the employer's office or headquarters?

We are able to provide an on-site examination if you provide a licensed doctor’s office. (The practice must be licensed by the NNK and equipped with the minimum conditions of the subject. Without a licence, both the employer and the doctor will be severely penalised!)

Occupational aptitude test

How often do I need to go for a fitness test?

The risk analysis will identify in detail the exposure associated with the job, this and the health status of the worker will determine the frequency. Generally speaking, it should be done annually.

In the event of illness, can the occupational doctor suspend work?

In the event of a long-lasting illness that affects the worker's work - e.g. a herniated disc in a driver's job - the occupational doctor may suspend work to prevent further damage to the worker's health.

Can I get a health booklet as a private individual?

You can also apply for a health booklet as a private person (e.g. occasional catering, hostess work), the fee for which is according to the current regulation.

What is needed for the health booklet?

The health booklet requires a lung screening within one year.

Do I need a referral for a lung screening?
