Aviation Medical Certificates

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) requires pilots and aircrew to obtain an aviation medical certificate that’s specific to their role.

Dr Rohana is an Australian Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME) who can issue aviation medical certificates. Assessments are conducted via appointment only and must be booked in advance.  You will need your ARN (Aviation Reference Number) to book an Aviation Medical.

Aviation Medicals take longer than a standard GP appointment. Our friendly admin staff are happy to answer any questions you may have in regards to the different types of tests that are involved in the examination, the expected length of time for your consultation and assessment, and any related costs. They will also be able to advise you how long your specific aviation medical certificate will be valid for.

NSW Coal Mine Workers Order No. 43 Medical Assessments (Order 43)

To allow the approved medical officer to make an accurate determination of fitness, the employer must complete the Order 43 role requirements document. It should then be submitted to the approved medical officer prior to the medical assessment being conducted.

RAIL INDUSTRY WORKERS ARE REQUIRED BY LEGISLATION TO UNDERGO A RAIL SAFETY WORKERS MEDICAL ASSESSMENT TO MANAGE POTENTIAL RISKS POSED BY THE ILL HEALTH OF RAIL SAFETY WORKERS.

The National Standard for Health Assessment of Rail Safety Workers underpins a system for monitoring the health of rail safety workers and enables a consistent application of health standards across the Australian rail industry. All health assessments conducted by Dr Rohana for rail safety workers are in line with the Standard.

Under rail safety legislation, rail transport operators are required to manage the risks posed by the ill health of rail safety workers. The responsibility is an essential part of an operator’s rail safety management system, which aims to minimise risks and protect the safety of the public, rail safety workers and their fellow workers, and the environment.

There are three different types of health assessment based on whether the work undertaken is safety critical or non-safety critical. A risk management approach is used to determine which category of health assessment applies to various types of work as follows:

RAIL MEDICAL (CATEGORY 1)

Applies to rail safety workers who undertake safety critical work and whose ill health may result in sudden incapacity or collapse leading to a serious incident affecting public safety or the rail network.

RAIL MEDICAL (CATEGORY 2)

Applies to rail safety workers who undertake safety critical work where sudden incapacity will not impact on the safety of the public or the rail network.

RAIL MEDICAL (CATEGORY 3)

Applies to rail safety workers who undertake non-safety critical work and whose health and fitness does not impact directly on the rail network but who are required to protect their own safety and that of other workers.

Pre-employment medicals

In certain roles, employers require their employees to undertake a medical assessment prior to starting work to ensure that they are fit to work in a specific environment and under certain conditions. We offer Pre-Employment Medical Examinations.

Please note that pre-employment medicals cannot be booked online. To book an appointment, please call  – 0419 773 921.
