Fortunately, the Work Clinic offers a multitude of examinations to ensure your future employees are a good match for their job description.

Monitoring employees’ health and work statuses is key to determining trends to certain injuries. Once a trend is determined, steps can be put in place to prevent that specific injury in the future. This increases workplace safety and saves you money.

Physical Exams

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.

Types of Physicals:

  • FAA (1st, 2nd, 3rd class)
  • Coast Guard
  • Respirator
  • Cruise
  • Police
  • Firefighter
  • Diver
  • Oil and Gas (OGUK)

Additional Services:

  • Radiology services
  • Audiometric testing
  • Laboratory testing
  • Pulmonary function testing
  • Electrocardiogram
  • Vision screening
  • TB testing (PPD or quantiFERON)

Work Injuries

The Work Clinic defines primary injury care as treating non-emergency injuries sustained at work. This include lacerations, closed fractures, sprains, as well as back and eye injuries. In addition, we provide medical surveillance for exposure to chemicals and blood-borne pathogens (needlestick).

Our clinic also manages occupational disease such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and degenerative disc disease.

We are able to:

  • Assess and triage the injury
  • Question the patient to learn how the injury occurred, the medical history of the individual, and other important information
  • Counsel the patient on next steps and what to expect, in accordance with our treatment philosophy that encourages continued activity, modified duty, and early return-to-work
  • Direct the patient to return to work

The Work Clinic’s focus on quality medicine and rapid treatment progression has proven to be highly effective in restoring health of the injured while reducing overall costs for employers.

Drug & Alcohol Screening

Drug Screens:

The Work Clinic provides 5, 7, or 10 panel drug screens that identify various substances like amphetamines, opiates, THC, PCP, and barbiturates. Samples can be taken from hair, urine, or blood. We use a laboratory certified by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA). This allows for the test results to be directly transmitted to our in-house Medical Review Officer (MRO) to ensure express results. You may also request that we collect and ship to a lab of your choice.

Breath-Alcohol Testing (BAT):

The Work Clinic performs breath-alcohol testing with a highly precise, DOT-approved electrochemical breathalyzer.

Types of Drug Screening and BAT:

  • DOT and non-DOT
  • Pre-employment
  • Post-accident
  • Reasonable Cause
  • Random
  • Follow-up
  • Post-injury

Medical Surveillance

Medical surveillance makes sure workers are healthy when they are exposed or potentially exposed to occupational hazards. It ensures employee fitness is optimal by monitoring their health and work histories.

The Work Clinic is able to provide many medical surveillance services that are assessed under strict or customized regulations. We will examine workers at timely intervals, tracking their exposure levels, and analyzing the results. Through this surveillance system, we hope to prevent future exposures and ultimately reduce the risk of obtaining work-related injuries.

Some hazards we monitor:

  • Chromium (Cr IV)
  • Benzene
  • Asbestos
  • Lead
  • Silica
  • Cadmium
  • Tb (PPD) testing
  • Blood-borne pathogens

Certified Medical Review Officer

A Medical Review Officer (MRO) is a licensed physician that reviews test results with the donor and has the final decision on whether the results are positive or negative, legitimate or adulterated. They also advise employers on how to deal with their employees who have tested positive.

The Work Clinic has certified MROs that are verified by the American Association of Medical Review Officers, so you can feel confident and secure about the information we provide. They would be responsible for the quality, confidentiality, and timely review of the drug screening process to limit your liability.
