Medical examinations

An examination may be requested by the employer by applying to the office of the occupational physician responsible for the company, if he/she considers an employee's state of health may be detrimental to safety in the workplace.

The employer informs the employee and the occupational physician of the reasons for requesting the examination before the consultation takes place, so that the employee is fully aware of the situation.

The doctor then informs the employer of the fitness outcome, in strict professional confidence.
