REPORT OF EXAMINATIONS
Every worker examined should have their individual Report of Examinations as this serves
as their personal case notes. The workers’ individual forms should be completed after each
round of examinations and whenever repeat tests and other actions e.g. workplace
inspection, assessing and reducing risks, referrals, etc are carried out. It gives a
chronological record of the medical examination results and interventions, enabling you to
detect adverse trends.
Clinical examination findings and test results should be included. One form should be used
per worker per hazard. If a worker is exposed to more than one hazard, the worker’s
personal particulars need only be completed once.
