Physical Exams & Medical Surveillance

Physical Exams 

Department of Transportation (DOT) medical exam: DOT requires a DOT physical for anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,001 pounds or more or transporting hazardous materials. DOT physicals assess the physical and mental fitness of the driver to operate the commercial vehicle safely.

Pre-employment physicals help to ensure a new associate is healthy and can perform the job duties safely and effectively. The pre-employment physicals reduce the risk of workplace accidents, injuries, and illnesses that can be costly to the employer.

The pre-employment physical is a medical examination of the associate’s overall health, medical history, and physical abilities to determine whether they fit the job. The specific components can vary depending on the job requirements and the employer’s policy. Pre-employment physicals are often performed with a drug screen and a Job Placement Assessment (JPA).

NFPA 1582 Firefighter Physical Exam: the standard baseline and annual occupational medical exam to reduce risks and provide for the health, safety, and effectiveness of firefighters operating to protect civilian life and property.
