Pre-Employment Physicals

What is a pre-employment physical for?

A pre-employment physical exam is often performed after a person has been offered a job, but before they begin work. The exam is performed with attention to the job duties, including physical requirements to ensure that the prospective employee can perform the tasks effectively and safely.

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 and others. Medically conditional information is not divulged on this form. This form of communication usually is a standard form that is placed in the employee's file. Specific medical records remain at the health facility and are maintained only by the medical staff.
