Who is a candidate for an employee physical?
An employee who can’t physically perform their job can endanger themselves and others. University Urgent Care’s pre-employment and employee physicals help to make sure employees are healthy and able to work efficiently. We provide physicals that help you and your business stay in compliance with federal and state rules and regulations, including DOT physicals, OSHA physicals, FAA physicals, and more.
If an employee experiences a work-related injury, information gathered from an employee physical can help their physician provide faster, more personalized care. When employees have easy access to preventive health screenings and baseline medical health information, they can get an earlier diagnosis and more treatment options with a higher chance of success.

Employee Physical FAQ
What goes into an employee physical?
Generally, employee physicals will conduct basic tests, checking things like the patient's weight, pulse, blood pressure, and temperature. In some cases, we may also examine their vision, hearing, and reflexes, as well as respiratory and cardiovascular health.
Can you fail an employee physical for being overweight?
This depends on the exact company and occupation you are attempting to work in. Typically, simply being overweight will not cause someone to fail their employee physical. However, if the company can demonstrate that being overweight will prevent you from adequately doing your job, it could disqualify you from the position.
What happens if I fail an employee physical examination?
Unfortunately, failure of an employee physical will often lead to your removal from your current position in the company. However, each business handles this differently — so this should always be discussed with your place of work.
