Pre-placement Health Screening in the UK

The aim of pre-placement health screenings is not to discriminate between prospective employees, but to develop an understanding of their health, and commit to their continued health and wellbeing in your workplace. Health screenings such as this prepare the employer for accommodating any health needs, which can lower potential sickness absences and improve productivity. These tests can also be used to check whether prospective employees will be able to complete the tasks necessary for the role.
