RAILWAY MEDICAL

Our Approved Health Practitioners (AHP) can undertake rail medicals at all levels in all jurisdictions in accordance with the National Transport Commission (NTC) rail safety worker medical.
Your Rail Operator will advise you of which Rail Medical Category (1, 2 or 3) you require.

  • Category 1: applies to rail safety workers who undertake safety critical work and whose ill health may result in sudden incapacity or collapse leading to a serious incident affecting public safety or the rail
  • Category 2: applies to rail safety workers who undertake safety critical work where sudden incapacity will not impact on the safety of the public or the rail network.
  • Category 3: ( Track safety ) applies to rail safety workers who undertake non-safety critical work and whose health and fitness does not impact directly on the rail network but who are required to protect their own safety and that of other workers.
Rail medicals usually for Category 1 and 2 , incorporate coronary risk analysis, so you will need to have an ECG (heart check) and a blood test (for cholesterol etc.) Some operators and employers may require additional tests Urine Drug screening is part of these assessments which we can perform onsite.
