Pre-employment medical questionnaire form template

This questionnaire collects specific job-related information about a post, and relevant health information about the new starter. This information can then be assessed by OHS advisers or other qualified personnel, who can: 

  1. Assess the candidate's medical capability to do the job for which they have applied: this will include assessing whether there are any statutory and legal reasons why an individual may not carry out particular work: for example, health and safety regulations would mean that a candidate with epilepsy would not be allowed to undertake a post involving driving; and
  2. Provide advice to departments to ensure that none of the role's duties will adversely affect any pre-existing health conditions the candidate has declared.


Pre-employment medical questionnaire

[Employees starting jobs that involve work with hazards (e.g. sensitising chemicals, allergens etc) or safety-critical activities (e.g. night work, driving a vehicle etc) must complete and return this medical questionnaire before commencing employment.]

An answer must be provided for all questions. The information will be treated in confidence by the Occupation Health Adviser.
