Employee Health Monitoring is available to minimise exposure to the effect of any claims, Department of Labour interventions and any future ACC premiums.

Health Monitoring is a way to check if the health of your employees is being harmed by exposure to hazards while carrying out work and aims to detect early signs of ill-health or disease. Health monitoring is also necessary to ensure the control measures that you have taken are working effectively.

The purposes of our Employee Health Monitoring is to: 

  • Measure health suitability
  • Set baseline information for ACC and The Department of Labour purposes
  • To screen out people whose present condition could be affected by taking on a particular occupation

Employee Health Monitoring can include any or all of the following:

Biological Testing

We can sample for exposure to Chemicals, Cholinesterase and Lead Exposure, with either Urine sampling or Blood sampling. Sampling for chemicals can be done by either blood or urine sampling, but blood sampling is the most effective medium for Cholinesterase and Lead exposure.

Hearing Test

Hearing tests are mandatory if your workplace has noise levels exceeding 85dBA. Hearing tests support you in meeting your legal obligations. It is recommended that hearing tests be carried out annually to comply with the Approved Code of Practice for the Management of Noise in the Workplace.

Lung Function Testing

Recommended for employees in Christchurch who are exposed to contaminants in the air that could affect lung function. Examples of harmful substances include; Isocyanates, dusts, solvents and other chemicals, and asbestos. Employees undergo a 15 minute lung function test usually at your workplace.

Physical Flexibility & Grip Strength

Physical Flexibility & Grip Strength assessments are for people exposed to the risk of repetitive tasks with discomfort. Each person is grip strength measured.  A discomfort questionnaire is completed with possible causes, albeit work or not. The results will be tabled on a spreadsheet for your evaluation.  The grip strength is used to assess the degree of potential injury or weakness.

Vision Testing

TriEx offers vision testing which is important for those who require precise vision for their work or excellent colour competency. Employees undergo a five minute vision test usually at your premises (or TriEx premises by arrangement). TriEx will take care of all future test scheduling and a full statistical and informative report on results is released to management.

Skin Assessments

Often staff are hesitant about going to their own doctor about a skin condition so to encourage awareness about skin, TriEx will come to see them at your workplace and refer if necessary. TriEx offers melanoma education on sun exposure for workers exposed to the harmful effects of the sun.
