Pre-Employment Examinations & Testing
Pre-employment examinations test an applicants ability to safely perform essential job functions. Employers may have a simple or comprehensive testing requirement intended to determine the physical, mental and general health of applicants. Types of evaluations include physical examinations, thorough understanding of past medical history, lift tests, cardiovascular endurance and drug/alcohol testing. The healthcare provider will determine if you are medically qualified to perform the duties required of the position. If you have any chronic health conditions (e.g., diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, stenting after heart attack, etc) bring your most recent medical records to the examination.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is a subsidiary of the Department of Transportation (DOT) which mandates regular medical examinations of commercial vehicle operators. DOT physicals are required to be completed by National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) healthcare providers that understand the physical and mental demands of commercial drivers. All EHS Telemedicine providers are NRCME certified. The DOT physical process can be lengthy and take multiple attempts to obtain the Medical Examiner's Certificate. We recommend using MedScreen to streamline the process and thoroughly prepare you for your visit.
Fitness-for-duty exams are intended to ensure that workers can safely perform specific jobs and are an essential part of a safe return to work. For employees who are working or returning to work after injury. When fitness-for-duty exams are performed for return to work, they’re often called return-to-work exams. An employer may request a fit-for-duty exam for an employee who is completing treatment and is ready to return to work after a serious illness or injury. The information from a return-to-work physical assists employers in understanding if the employee can safely perform their job while returning to work without risking re-injury.
OSHA Screening & Surveillance
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) medical screening and surveillance - mandatory evaluations for workers exposed to hazardous materials. We perform baseline, periodic, and exit evaluations. OSHA states - "The fundamental purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment of the individual.
