Fit For Task and Safety Critical Medicals
There are two types of fitness medicals known as ‘Fit for Task’ or ‘Safety Critical’.
The main difference between these two types of assessments are dependent on where the employee is working. If the employee is working within their company on for example an FLT, this is FIT FOR TASK as part of the companies health surveillance.
If an employee is going to an EXTERNAL site such as construction to complete the their work, they will need a fitness certificate to get onto site. This is SAFETY CRITICAL.
