Convenient and Thorough; No Appointment Necessary
Patients Choice Urgent Care provides a number of comprehensive physical exams designed around employer needs, including the D.O.T. physical exam. This exam serves to comply with the Michigan Department of Transportation or MDOT and other regulatory requirements.
The US Department of Transportation issues regulations that employees working in various aspects of transportation must meet. This includes all modes of transportation and industries associated with transportation, including road and railway construction. Employers must ensure their employees meet the proper regulations for their specific job to be compliant with local, state, and federal regulations.
All drivers (interstate or intrastate) are mandated by the Federal government to successfully pass a medical examination performed by a Certified Medical Examiner (CME) prior to operating a commercial motor vehicle. These physical exams follow a rigid protocol laid out by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
As different health conditions can affect the outcome of the exam, PCUC strongly encourages drivers coming in for D.O.T. physical examinations to bring a list of current medications along with relevant medical records related to cardiac or neurologic health issues for review.
What It Means For Employers
By staying current and compliant on all DOT regulations – including DOT Physicals, employers can ensure a safer and healthier workforce, as well as reduce the risk of on-the-job injuries and fines. Employers must also comply with DOT regulations to ensure safe working conditions and proper precautions are being met to protect employees and the greater public.
