IU Health Occupational Services uses a laboratory certified by the Substance Abuse an Mental Health Service Administration. This method allows for test results to be directly transmitted to our in-house Medical Review Officer to ensure timely reporting of results, or you may specify that we collect and ship to any lab of your choice.
We perform evidential breath testing (EBT) with a DOT-approved electrochemical infrared breathalyzer. Our personnel performing the EBT are Certified Breath Alcohol technicians.
These physical examination evaluations answer an important question: Can this worker meet the physical demands of a specific job duty? It will also help determine if any medical conditions exist that may need to be considered when matching the worker to the job.
Operators of commercial vehicles are required by law to have a Medical Examiners certificate stating they are physically qualified to drive a commercial vehicle. Each of our clinics can perform the certification physical and provide the written documentation necessary to satisfy this federal requirement.
A baseline physical examination, performed at the beginning of employment, provides documentation that is useful for comparison to subsequent examinations in order to determine health changes occurring over time.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OS HA) mandates surveillance specifically for those workers where harmful health consequences have been linked to workplace exposures. Surveillance examinations may include a respirator wearer’s examination, a hearing evaluation or other examinations required by OSHA’s substance-specific standards. Board-certified occupational physicians and nurses are available to customize a medical surveillance program to keep your company safe, productive and OSHA-compliant.
