Pre-Placement and Periodic Testing

Pre-placement exams are valuable in the hiring process. Their purpose is to determine if an employee is medically able to meet a specific job's physical demands. Relevant information is gathered about the essential functions of the job and the health status of the worker applying for the job, which enables a company to match the worker with the job, if possible, or to tailor the job to fit the worker, if needed.

Physical examination components

  • Occupational and Medical History
  • Blood Pressure and Pulse
  • Vision Screen
  • Height and Weight
  • Complete Physical Examination
  • Urine Drug Screen (at employer's request, additional cost)
  • Functional Capacity Evaluation (at employer's request, additional cost)

Specific aspects of the evaluation supply the general health baseline information necessary to assess an individual's health and ability to work.

Following completion of all examination components, the examiner will evaluate results and make a determination of an individual's ability to work based on that person's job description. The examiner will then complete a work-clearance status form and send it to the appropriate contact person.

The Occupational Health Center maintains complete medical records for all examinees. These records are available for audit or regulatory purposes to appropriate officials, as needed.
