Employment Physical Exams

Pre-placement physicals help departments answer the question: "Does this job applicant have the physical capabilities to perform the essential functions of this job?"

Regulatory and compliance examinations establish a medical baseline for employees according to certain regulations (DOT, OSHA, etc.), and include periodic medical monitoring when indicated.

Return-to-work examinations confirm that employees returning from medical leave can perform their job duties.
