Potential employees may be required to perform a pre-employment physical to assess their manual and physical labor abilities depending upon the job description and requirements.

If you are hired for a high-pressured, or labor-extensive position, employers conduct the tests to measure how well you may be able to perform the work.

Employers may want to check for:

  • Medical history and current health conditions
  • Use of medications or supplements that may have serious side effects that may affect work performance
  • Use of illegal drugs that would hinder work performance and violate company policy
  • Physical strength that may be required for positions that involve heavy lifting
  • Well-being regarding depression symptoms or how you deal with stress

Our experienced physicians at AFC Urgent Care West Long Branch administer pre-employment physicals any day of the week.

For more information about our pre-employment physicals or our other occupational health services, please call to speak with one of our medical professionals at 732.222.8000.
