Why Get a Physical Exam?
Individuals being evaluated for hire or placement are not required to divulge past medical problems to a prospective employer. In fact, employers cannot ask questions that may reveal past or current disabilities and/or impairments. A medical provider, however, may inquire about past medical and/or physical conditions. For that reason, a physical examination should be an integral part of the hiring process.
What We Can Do:
As specialists in the field of occupational medicine, the Work Clinic performs a variety of physical examinations related to employment and the workplace, DOT and non-DOT.
- Pre-employment/post-offer/re-certification physicals determine whether applicants/employees are medically and physically able to perform their jobs. This establishes a medical baseline for employees in accordance with the appropriate regulatory agency (DOT, OSHA, etc.). We also perform periodic medical monitoring when indicated.
- Fitness-for-duty examinations confirm that employees can perform their job duties upon return from medical leave as part of the company’s health and wellness initiatives.
- Exit physicals determine if the exiting employee is healthy at the time he or she leaves the company.
- Annual and periodic physical examinations keep your employees up-to-date on their health.
- Review of the patient’s medical and occupational history allow us to proceed with the physical examination.
