Welcome to St. Joseph’s Health Centre. For your protection and to ensure the safety of our patients and staff, all new employees are required to successfully complete all 3 steps of the pre-employment process. The pre-employment process complies with the Public Hospitals Act (Regulation 965, Section 4) the Ontario Medical Association/Ontario Hospital Association Communicable Disease Surveillance Protocols and Health Centre policy. Please read the following instructions carefully.
Please have your physician, current employer’s occupational health nurse and/or college or university student health service fully complete the Employee Tuberculin Testing form. This form is to be returned to Occupational Health & Safety Services one week prior to your start date. If the form is not received within this time frame Human Resources may change your start date, as you have not been cleared to start employment.
Occupational Health & Safety Services will contact you once to schedule an Occupational Health Assessment appointment. Alternatively, you may report directly to OH&SS or contact us via telephone to schedule an appointment. The assessment is to be completed prior to your start date. Human Resources will be notified of non-compliance.
Arrive on time to your scheduled Occupational Health Assessment. Completion of the assessment may include, N95 respirator fit testing and blood work for Rubella, Rubeola, Varicella and Hepatitis B antibodies. N95 respirator fit testing requires males to be clean-shaven in areas where the respirator meets or seals to the face. No beards, long moustaches or goatees will be permitted. If you have previously completed the above-mentioned tests, please bring supporting documentation to your appointment.
