    The pre-employment health assessment forms part of a screening process designed to ensure that all new staff are fit to perform the duties and tasks of the job they have been offered.

    The information collected during the assessment will be appropriate to the area in which employment is offered. Your future manager has indicated which hazards and potential risks you may be exposed to and appropriate screening will be carried out accordingly.
    In the event that you have any medical or health related condition(s) that are:

    • likely to affect or limit your ability to carry out the full requirements of the position you have been provisionally offered; or
    • that may be aggravated by the tasks of that position; and/or
    • you are certified as being “unfit for work” by a registered medical practitioner during a pre-employment assessment

    You accept that TE WHATU ORA - CAPITAL, COAST AND HUTT VALLEY may elect to withdraw the offer of employment or terminate your employment (where the offer has already been accepted by you), unless the position can be reasonably altered or the workplace modified in order to reduce the risk of harm or injury to yourself or others.

    Clinical employees are reminded to consider their own risk of infection with blood-borne pathogens (Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV) and the associated risk of transmitting infection to patients. Professional bodies (NZ Medical Association, NZNO, and Australasian College of Surgeons etc.) have statements relating to this, and workers should acquaint themselves with the appropriate association policies. Any employee who is a carrier of a blood-borne disease and knowingly exposes their patients to a risk of infection based on their own risk assessment, without seeking further counselling, could be open to disciplinary proceedings.
