Why is the Pre-Employment Physical Examination Necessary?

Before hiring a new individual and welcoming them to your team, it is important to understand their health condition and physical abilities, including illnesses and various conditions. As this can affect their employment, DOCS Urgent Care is here to help the companies of Southington with professional tests.

The physical examination at DOCS Urgent Care covers a variety of grounds and conditions. One of these areas includes medication testing. Different medication serves different purposes, and similarly, it can have different effects on individuals. Rather than letting this impact an employee’s ability to work and potentially putting others at risk, DOCS Urgent Care undergoes proper testing. This involves medication that increases drowsiness (to avoid harm with heavy machinery) and anti-depressants (for increased risk at high stress level jobs). At our Southington clinic, we also provide drug testing. As with everything we do at DOCS Urgent Care, we want to help keep your workplace safe and healthy.
