The physical exam is the foundation of establishing medical clearance to work in all safety-sensitive roles. Our medical fitness testing and functional testing services were developed and carried out by some of the most knowledgeable experts in the industry. Customizable to meet your needs wherever you’re working in Canada or abroad, these services have been designed to protect employer and employee rights, ensuring that employees don’t unfairly lose employment and that employers can defend decisions when required. Our evaluations also mitigate the risks health conditions can pose, both immediate and long-term.
These exams help organizations operating in safety-sensitive industries to promote safety by managing employee health risks. They also improve overall health and wellness in the workplace by assessing whether people are medically fit for the job they are performing. In some industries, such as construction, transportation, and aviation, medical fitness testing is required because employee health conditions could endanger the public.
Our comprehensive medical exam includes a full medical history and head-to-toe physical assessment. All medical exams are performed only by qualified individuals, and results are reviewed by a physician team, assuring quality and consistency. The physician determines fitness for duty, recommends additional assessments when they are needed, and advises on follow-up interventions if required. Over our 17 years of history in providing such medical evaluations, we have identified serious undiagnosed medical conditions, including diabetes, heart conditions, and cancer.

The Functional Fitness Evaluation evaluates whether an individual is able to meet the physical demands of a specific job. It can be a valuable add-on to a medical evaluation, or done as part of a site requirement. This testing evaluates an individual’s functional ability to perform specific work tasks, to avoid putting that person in danger if he or she can’t physically perform a job.
When we do a Functional Fitness Evaluation, we spend approximately one day assessing and documenting the physical requirements of the job. This assessment is done by a certified and experienced physiotherapist, kinesiologist, or occupational therapist.
