Employees have differing strengths and
physical capacities. When an employer understands what every employee is
capable of doing, and the tasks for which they are not well suited, a safe and
productive workplace can be maintained. West Texas Injury Prevention can assist
you in evaluating and assigning different tasks to your employees, based upon
their differing physical capabilities.
Pre-employment physical examinations are becoming standard in
a lot of industries. At one-time employers were required only in industries with
numerous work-related accidents, however, an increasing number of employers are
discovering the benefits of requiring them.
On the surface, it appears as if physical exams are only
beneficial to employers, however in reality, workers benefit as well. How do
workers benefit? To begin with, physical exams ensure that a worker is healthy
and capable of performing the job for which they are hired. It is true that the employer is being
protected against legal claims by requiring physicals, but the employee is also
protected by confirming that they are in good physical condition and capable of
performing their job.
