What are DOT physicals?
Federal law requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles (DMVs) to receive regular physical examinations. These exams are defined as the “Department of Transportation Medical Examinations.” DOT physicals are highly regulated for the drivers’ safety. They detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can affect a driver’s ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle. DOT medical examiners are specially trained to understand the regulations and prevent drivers from being inappropriately disqualified.
Employee physicals are designed to evaluate your employee’s health and their fit for work status. Most physicals capture the individual’s vital signs, past medical history, allergy information, and social history data. Our medical experts are specifically trained to understand and perform these procedures in accordance to state and federal regulations as well as your unique business needs. Depending on the industry and your company’s requirements, these exams can be done for pre-employment or regularly every year.
Our pre-employment physicals can include:
·Regulatory and Compliance Examinations – establish a medical baseline for employees according to certain regulations
(DOT, DHHS, OSHA, etc.), and include periodic medical monitoring when indicated.
·Fitness-For-Duty Examinations – confirm that employees returning from medical leave can perform their job duties.
·Executive Wellness Examinations – establish baseline medical information as part of companies’ voluntary health and wellness initiatives.
·Health Risk Assessments – confirm the biometric numbers/scores of employees as part of long-term health and wellness,
and indicate potential areas of health risk.
