Advice and guidance about Health Assessment Questionnaires.

All new employees undertake a Health Assessment Questionnaire. This process is managed by Departmental Recruiters. The questionnaire is to assesses the individual’s fitness for the job role which they have been offered and ensures appropriate health advice and guidance can be provided.

The Health Assessment Questionnaire seeks to:
• Advise on job adjustments required to accommodate relevant disability
• Ensure an applicant’s health will not be affected by the job role
• Check whether an applicant’s health is compatible with the job role
• Ensure that applicants meet any required safety standards

All Health Assessment Questionnaires are completed via the HML online portal. This process replaces the pre-employment health screening questionnaire which has been part of eRecruitment.
