People work at height such as Industrial Abseilers, Riggers, Rooftop workers or telecoms engineers may require a medical to check their fitness for their specific role.
ToHealth can provide these medicals also known as Working at Height Medicals from our clinic near Waterloo station in London. These medicals are designed to detect and assess any medical conditions that may compromise safety by creating a risk of falling or sudden incapacity requiring rescue and assure capability for regular climbing of vertical ladders and for working in hot and/or confined spaces. Together these ensure an individual’s fitness to work within the wind turbine environment.
