The hiring process can be a huge undertaking for any employer, and the situation can get even testier if things don’t work out between employer and employee. Perhaps the individual seemed like a good candidate at the beginning, but ultimately, he or she is unable to meet the expectations of the job, putting him or herself at risk of injury. Worse, he or she could put your other employees at risk as well.
Fortunately, there is a way to ensure that an applicant can handle the tasks that the job requires, and that’s by having him or her undergo a comprehensive pre employment physical. This type of physical exam benefits both employer and employee—employers get the right person for the job, while employees get to know what they’re capable of, making them better informed to decide whether or not to accept a job offer.
