Pre-employment medical examinations

Pre-employment medical examinations are required for employees recruited to a permanent relationship or for a fixed term longer than one year. Blood pressure measurement and basic blood tests suchs as glucose, cholesterol and liver are included in the medical examination. The results will be looked through at an appointment with an occupational health nurse. The general health situation of the new employee is checked at the same time. If necessary, the occupational health nurse gives a referral for an appointment with a occupational health doctor.

The pre-employment medical examination is agreed upon during the probation period.

First aid skills

First aid training for different skill levels is organised annually. The training is organised by the Aalto occupational safety in co-operation with the Finnish Red Cross.


Necessary vaccinations needed for work or business trips are covered by the occupational health care services free of charge.
