Physical Examinations

DOT & Non-DOT Physicals

 Employee Physical Examinations for future, current, and retiring employees, whether regulated by a government agency or a standalone company, are beneficial to keep employees safe and healthy on the job. Candidates for employment will undergo a physical examination including a routine vision screening, vital check (blood pressure and heart rate), a height and weight assessment, as well as an examination of multiple body systems including cardiovascular, respiratory, and musculoskeletal. Here at LOHS we offer a wide variety of physical examinations to meet the needs of our clients across most industries.
