Depending on your needs, Mobile Health can design a simple and quick physical exam or a more detailed and thorough check-up.
Pre-Employment vs Annual Physical Exam?
If you require a physical or medical clearance for your employees, you most likely also require a pre-employment screening or physical for all new hires. This physical may be required by a local Department of Health (DOH) or by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
A pre-employment physical ensures that the new hire is physically capable of performing the duties that will be associated with their job. It will also determine a baseline for your employees at time of employment so you can keep track of changes in their health. This means that a certain metric is recorded at hiring so you can keep track of changes in their health.
After hiring, an an annual physical exam is an important part of maintaining occupational health and safety. For healthcare workers, the physical exam is crucial because it tells us that the employee is free of contagious diseases which may harm patients.
Both pre-employment and annual physical exams generally keep track of the following:
- Blood pressure
- Height and weight
- Body mass index (BMI)
- Pulse rate
- Respiration rate
- Existing medical illnesses
- Previous medical history
- Allergies and general social history
Employee Health Physical
Even if you are not required by national or regional regulations, offering your employees a no-cost health check physical is a great way to ensure workplace safety and wellness.
Employee health physicals help workers be aware of their health and allow them to take proactive steps to improve their well-being. When compared to having employees out sick, providing employee health physicals can be a positive ROI for many organizations.
