PERSONAL SAFETY CONCERNS
A Legal Manager requests guidance from their Corporate Medical Advisor on a planned termination of a long-service employee who has had two recent warnings for process-safety incidents involving routine job functions, where the employee could not recall completing a critical task, resulting in a near-miss safety incident. Supervisor interviews with coworkers suggested that the employee had become more forgetful over the past six months and confirmed he was getting help from coworkers with reminders. The Legal Manager is concerned that employee may have a personal medical condition.
