Why is the Pre-Employment Physical Examination Necessary?

Within our North Haven’s urgent care, we need to see how each North Haven applicant’s health will influence their employment. Thus, each are given a physical examination. By doing these tests we are able to examine each of our North Haven patients according to the specifics in which they’re designed and they will test their physical health and abilities.

Various medication testing will always be done for North Haven individuals. We do this in order to assess how the medications may affect their work performance. Yet, because of some of the medications, drowsiness may be a symptom; employees who operate heavy machinery should take note of this. Screenings may be a requirement to ensure that mental disorders (such as depression) are not present in these applicants. This is important especially if a North Haven applicant has a high stress occupation. It is crucial for us to keep the workplace safe always, so one of the examinations that we provide at our North Haven clinic is drug testing.

Comprehensive testings, within this case, can be helpful. These tests give us the opportunity to match potential North Haven employees to the physical expectations of each role. Within these exams, multiple tests of grip and pull strength will occur. These will be done in order to monitor the patient’s general strength and their ability to carry objects.
