Pre-Employment Physical for Work

What is a Pre-Employment physical for work?


Once you have been offered a job position with common physical requirements, you might need to complete a pre-employment physical.

This pre-employment physical is customized to the specific requirements of the job and only tests skills that are used on a regular basis.

The goal is to assess your ability and minimize the risk(s) of potential job site injuries.
