Statutory Checkups

Medical Check Ups – Climbing with great hight difference incl. ECG

The statutory check-up complies with the legal requirements of AFS 2019:3, AFS 2000:06 and applies to employees who work at drop heights - where the workplace includes work with masts and poles, as well as climbing where the level difference is over thirteen meters. Before you order the service, you need to carry out a risk assessment.

What it is

Medical Check-up - Climbing with great hight difference incl ECG is done to reduce health risks of employees working at drop heights. Check-ups that include ECG is not done as often as check-ups without ECG. Make sure you order the right service. After the check-up, we will issue a certificate of service.

  • Before starting work
  • Before work is resumed if more than twelve months have passed since the last check-up
  • Before continuing work for anyone who has had an incident that could lead to increased risk when working at drop heights
  • With a maximum of twelve months

When it should include ECG

  • At the first check
  • Every five years for employees under the age of 40
  • Every two years for employees between 40 and 50 years of age
  • Annually for employees over 50 years of age

The employer is responsible for ensuring that the right medical check-ups are done with the right periodicity.

What happens if I don't do a risk assessment before the check-up?

You should do a risk assessment before booking the service. This is to ensure that the check-up is done correctly, provides the right certificate and is not done unnecessarily. We do not check whether a risk assessment has been carried out or not, but book the service regardless.
