All crane operators should undertake a medical to ensure that you are fit to work at heights and in possession of heavy goods when controlling a crane.
The majority of employers now ask for a certificate of fitness to be provided by an individual when beginning a role which involves cranes.
D4Drivers carry out crane operator medicals at over 70 locations in the UK, with regular availability including evenings and weekends.
All medicals are carried out to group 2 driver medical standard (that of a professional HGV or PCV driver using standards set by DVLA), please ensure that is sufficient for your requirements prior to booking, and if you have a specific form/set of paperwork that needs completing email this to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can ensure we can assist you with your medical.
Although there is no national law which requires crane operators to undergo a medical examination the majority of employers see it as vital that operators are declared medically fit for the role by a registered Doctor.
Our Doctor will complete your medical for only £75. Your medical consists of an eyesight test using a Snellen chart, blood pressure checks to ensure your BP is at an acceptable level, urinalysis through a complementary diabetes screening, and a questionnaire regarding your medical history.
When you complete your examination our Doctor will provide you with your certificate of medical fitness (subject to the outcome of the medical) valid from the date you pass your medical examination, as well as indicate how long it is valid for which depends on our Doctor’s findings during the medical.
Please Bring to your Medical:
