Health Monitoring

A healthy team is a happy team

Ensuring your team members are safe and comfortable at work is one important part of operating a business; ensuring they are healthy and happy in their workplace is another. Life Care Consultants’ Health Monitoring are comprehensive health assessments for everyone.


We come to your workplace and conduct a series of health screenings designed to find early signs and symptoms of different health issues.

We can conduct tests for your staff on hearing, lung function, vision, blood pressure, fatigue, Body Mass Index (BMI), cholesterol, blood glucose, and range of motion. The results of these tests will be discussed with you and recommendations made for improving that staff member’s health.

For you as the employer not only you are looking after your employees and their wellbeing, but also ensuring they remain productive and happy in their work which, at the end of the day, is good for business.

Checks Available

  • Hearing

    We test hearing to the Approved Code of Practice for Noise Management. This test takes approximately 10 minutes and requires a reasonably quiet environment.

  • Lung function

    We use an electronic spirometer to measure lung function with an instant result, which will be discussed with the participant. The test takes approximately 3–5 minutes.

  • Vision screening

    Tests include near and far acuity (short and long-sightedness), stereopsis (depth perception), colour vision, night vision and peripheral vision.

  • Blood pressure

    We typically utilise a manual blood pressure equipment or a compact electronic device. It is preferable for participants to wear loose clothing to facilitate the removal of any obstructions and allow us to place the blood pressure cuff above the elbow for accurate measurements.

  • BMI (Body Mass Index)

    This is calculated using weight and height measurements. It is a useful assessment tool in identifying risk factors for heart disease and other health-related problems.

  • Fatigue assessment

    Life Care uses three fatigue questionnaires; namely, Epworth Sleepiness Scale, Risk for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), and the Occupational Fatigue Exhaustion Recovery Scale (OFER); and collectively, the results allow an evaluation of current fatigue risk within the company and where appropriate, a review of fatigue risk management practices.

    The key element to the fatigue results is to identify the employee’s ability or inability to fully recover, i.e. no longer feel fatigued when they return to work from one shift/ workday to the next.

    Those identified with high risk (persistent) fatigue will be referred to their GP for recommendations to better manage their fatigue, and to reduce the risk of excessive fatigue and improve worksite safety.

  • Cholesterol and blood glucose levels

    This involves a small finger prick for each test, using a lancet to produce a drop of blood. This will then be tested using our small electronic meters and takes 2–3 minutes per test. Fasting is not required for these results.

Respirator fit testing

Correct use of a respirator is not as simple as giving someone a mask and expecting them to use it.

A Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) or respirator should always be worn by workers in any environment where hazardous substances are suspected to be present, to minimise the risk of inhaling harmful substances.

Life Care’s Respirator Fit Testing tests the fit of the half face respirator (disposable or reusable) as required by AS/NZS 1715. These tests should be conducted annually (as a minimum). The worker needs to bring their own half-face mask(s) to the appointment for testing.

As an employer, our Respirator Fit Tests enable you to meet your health and safety requirements and protect your business. A respirator must fit securely and be maintained properly to provide optimal protection for your staff.

What to expect

Our consultant will provide a clinical questionnaire to determine the suitability of your employees to participate in the test. Once qualified, the consultant examines the employees’ current half-face or disposable respirator for functionality.

The consultant will then conduct sensitivity testing to ensure that employees can detect the challenge solution. Successful candidates can then undergo qualitative fit tests, which simulate working conditions where the respirator would be worn, to determine whether the respirator fits securely.

After the test, Life Care will issue a certificate indicating whether the result was a pass, fail or if additional quantitative testing is required for each person and respirator tested.

FATIGUE ASSESSMENT

Fatigue Negatively Affects Health, Safety, Productivity And Wellbeing.

Fatigue affects a person’s health, increases the chance of workplace injuries occurring, and reduces performance and productivity within the workplace. Fatigue also increases the chance of accidents occurring while traveling to and from work. Additionally, fatigue can have implications for public safety.

How It Will Help You

The Life Care Fatigue assessment will help to determine if an individual (or groups of individuals) experience moderate to high fatigue and/or excessive sleepiness.  Three scientific, extensively researched, validated tools are used to assess different areas of fatigue. You will receive information about the numbers of staff who are experiencing moderate to high fatigue.

Extensive Reporting

Beyond the initial results, if requested by a workplace, an extensive report can be produced, that also includes a comparison of your workplace fatigue data to published fatigue data. In this detailed report, Life Care Nutrition will also provide recommendations and guidelines as to how best deal with the fatigue results.

Fatigue Can Impair Your:

  1. Strength, speed, coordination, reaction time and balance
  2. Decision-making skills, communication skills, attention, and memory
  3. Productivity, ability to handle stress, and physical and mental health.
