Pre-appointment medical examination
When is a pre-employment medical examination necessary?
A pre-employment medical examination is necessary if the performance of a job entails risks to the health and/or safety of the employee and/or third parties. The timing of the examination is subject to strict rules. You can only ask a candidate to undergo a medical examination once they have actually been selected for the position. Note that you must inform the candidate in advance. Not only before the examination, but also that a medical examination forms part of the application procedure. With the exception of a limited number of situations required by law, you can decide whether you want a candidate to undergo a pre-employment examination. If you’re not sure whether a pre-employment medical examination would be best, KLM Health Services can quickly advise you on this matter. We can also tell you more about the purpose and content of the examination.
