Pre-employment Physical Exam
Pre-employment Physical Examinations are performed to determine if a potential employee is physically capable of performing the essential functions of the job, while maintaining their medical confidentiality.
The exam is conducted with attention to the applicant’s job duties, including physical requirements and potential exposures to hazardous materials. The content of the examination depends on the particular job and the work-site assessment. Certain jobs that require use of personal protective equipment, such as respiratory protection, can include a pulmonary function test (breathing test) as part of the pre-placement exam. Those involved in interstate trucking usually require a physical exam and a urinary drug test. To avoid errors in either the content or the context of the examination, Trinity Health Occupational Medicine uses standard practices to which both the employer and the examining physician agree. Following the examination, the physician provides a written opinion about the person's suitability for performing the job without health and safety risk to self or others.
Prevention programs can help keep employees health and can monitor their medical needs. Health promotion and prevention programs include:
- Vaccinations for Tetanus, Hep A & B, Influenza, Pneumonia, MMR, TB skin test and many other immunizations are available
- Annual TB testing
- Hearing assessments
- Wellness screenings (cholesterol, blood sugar, hemoglobin and blood pressure)
Fit for Duty
A “Fit for Duty” examination determines the ability of a worker to return to their job. Releasing employees back to work without understanding the full scope of their duties could risk further injury. Trinity Health Occupational Medicine can evaluate if the employee is fully able to do their job or if any restrictions may be indicated to protect the employee and employer.
