Audiometric Testing: Carried out by specialists with training in this area, in line with Australian/New Zealand Standards.

Job Specific Functional: Functional assessments may be required to assess a candidate’s ability to perform the inherent physical requirements of a specific role, and to determine if any modifications are recommended. A job specific functional assessment is matched to each individual job role.
Medical Assessment: We can arrange a medical assessment at a candidate’s local medical centre to screen for conditions that may have a detrimental effect on the candidate’s health, such as hypertension, diabetes, hernias or eyesight deficits.
Mental Health Screening: The K 10 is a widely used, simple self-report measure of psychological distress which can be used to identify those in need of further assessment for anxiety and depression.
Resilience and Cope Scale Assessments: Measure effective and ineffective ways to cope with a stressful life event. The assessments determine someone's primary coping styles as well as their ability to bounce back or recover from stress.
