Post-Offer Physical Examinations
Starting new employees off right.
When considering a prospective employee, you want to ensure they are in good health and can perform the job you are offering.
At Sharp Rees-Stealy Occupational Health, we provide a post-offer physical examination program to help you identify health issues with prospective employees, and provide a cost-efficient and legal means of screening them before they are hired.
Issues to consider before hiring.
It's important that any relevant physical limitations be acknowledged and accommodated if possible. Points to consider when hiring a new employee include:
- Are there physical limitations that would prevent this person from doing the required job tasks?
- Can this person perform the job based on the job description?
- Does this person consume illicit drugs?
- Does this person have a disability that falls under the Americans With Disabilities Act that would require you to provide a "reasonable accommodation"?
- Is this person likely to get hurt or suffer illness due to physical or environmental exposures at work?
Studies show that a post-offer screening process can reduce work-related injury and illness in the workplace, and that having a post-offer drug screening process in place deters individuals with drug and alcohol issues from applying.
Expert results you can count on.
Our post-offer examinations are conducted by board-certified physicians who are knowledgeable in the legalities of the process and with federal and state regulations. Our physicians are also very familiar with the Americans With Disabilities Act, as accommodation issues can be very expensive to the employer if not identified early. And as certified medical review officers, our experts understand the physiology of drug use, as well as evasion and masking techniques of those tested.
Based on the results of the post-offer examination and urine drug screen, our team will provide a medical opinion of "qualified or not qualified" for each prospective employee.
