Why is the Pre-Employment Physical Examination Necessary?

A pre-employment examination is necessary so as to ensure that a potential employee is not suffering from any conditions or illnesses that will interfere with their required work performance and tasks.  The tests are designed specifically to examine and analyze the patient’s overall health and their physical capabilities. 

Individuals are also tested for any medication or drug use which may impact their performance on the job.  There are a number of medications that can cause adverse reactions when in the workplace and it is important for employers to be aware of any such medication requirements.  Some pre-employment exams also include specialized screenings to ensure an individual does not suffer from any type of mental disorder such as depression that could seriously impede their work performance.  These types of tests are typically required for high stress level occupations. Drug testing is also a primary component of a pre-employment physical exam and is required to ensure a potential employee can work safe and effectively and also helps to ensure a safe workplace for all.
