Pre-Employment Physical exams will assess your physical ability to perform your job duties.
Your Pre-Employment Physical may require you do a Drug Screening Test, Stamina and Physical Ability Test, and a Psychological Test.
A pre-employment physical is part of the process for most companies. It involves the potential employee getting a medical exam to ensure that he or she is physically and mentally fit for the job. Usually, companies follow the guidelines provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration or the local Department of Health for pre-employment testing.
Companies also review the prospective employee’s overall work and medical history. Overall, the pre-employment test ensures that the employee’s health complies with his or her future job-related duties, especially if they are physically demanding. Depending on the nature of the job, the pre-employment physical can be a long or short process.
