Pre-Employment Exams Q&A

What are pre-employment exams?

Pre-employment exams are a type of screening used to determine if potential hires are capable of performing routine job duties. If your business requires physical labor like lifting, using hand tools, or carrying objects, you need a workforce that’s fit enough to carry out these tasks. 

Pre-employment exams can help you make calculated personnel decisions by identifying individuals who have the physical ability to get the job done. In addition, they can reduce employee turnover and direct costs by confirming a job applicant is qualified before starting the hiring and training process.

What do pre-employment exams involve?

No two pre-employment exams are exactly alike. The team at Occupational Health Services Medical Group tailors the appointment to your businesses’ unique needs.

The team offers a variety of pre-employment tests. Depending on your industry, you may choose one test or all; it depends on what’s best for your workforce.

Some of the tests that Occupational Health Services Medical Group offers include:

Drug and alcohol screenings

Drug and alcohol screenings test potential hires for illegal substances, prescription medication, and alcohol. There are several types of drug and alcohol screenings, including blood tests and urinalysis.

Physical ability tests

Physical ability tests measure a potential hire’s flexibility and ability to perform his or her job function. They help determine if a job candidate is physically fit enough to perform the daily tasks required of the position. During a physical ability test, the team assesses your heart health, flexibility, and balance, as well as the performance of specific muscle groups.

Can any business require pre-employment exams?

Any business can require a pre-employment exam, but they must adhere to all guidelines established by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This legislation prevents employers from discriminating against potential hires based on a disability. Therefore, employers can only require pre-employment testing after a conditional job offer is made.
