Keeping your workplace healthy
Our occupational health teams work closely with area employers to enable them to create the safest possible work environment for their employees. When inevitable on-the-job injuries and illnesses occur, we specialize in providing focused medical care for employees' work-related health issues. Franciscan Health occupational health services also offer a variety of physical examinations to help you keep your workforce healthy and in compliance with state and federal safety requirements.
- Pre-placement examinations for new employees: Our experienced occupational medicine providers deliver comprehensive, job-specific physical examinations to new employees.
- Department of Transportation (DOT) driver certification examinations: Providers use DOT regulations addressing driver certifications in a comprehensive examination to determine each driver’s physical qualifications.
- Disability examinations: Our physicians have extensive experience performing examinations to determine eligibility for disability benefits.
- Immigration examinations: Our physicians are designated as Civil Surgeons by the Department of Homeland Security U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Immigrants seeking changes in their legal status are often required to undergo medical evaluations, and the USCIS will only accept examinations performed by designated Civil Surgeons.
