Does an Occupational Doctor need to sign off on all medical certificates?


No. Most industries will allow occupational medicals to be signed of by a registered occupational health nurse as per the current health act.

However certain industries such as the transport industry, PDP’s, in particular, require an occupational doctor to sign off on medicals. Some large organizations with medical surveillance programs may require a Medical Practitioner to sign off on all medical certificates.
