Employment Services

Palomar Corporate Health Services can provide a variety of health screenings as required by federal statutes and regulations, as well as pre-employment screenings for specific occupational exposures, complying with OSHA requirements. Some of these services include:

Physical Examinations

Post Offer & Employment Examinations

We will work with you to determine the specific components of the post offer evaluation that best meets your needs. This evaluation may include a tour of your facility, review of specific physical and environmental factors and exposures, and discussion of applicable OSHA compliance programs.

Once the components of the evaluation are determined, you will be given a summary of your specific program outlining the components for each job title/description. Your individual program can be reviewed periodically to ensure that it continues to meet your changing needs and to comply with regulations.
Examples of routine examinations are:

  • Post-offer physical examinations
    • Place employees in physically unsuitable jobs
    • Compliance with ADA
    • Minimize potential cost of work-related injuries
  • DOT (Department of Transportation) physicals
  • Return to work or second opinion examinations
  • Independent medical evaluations
  • Immunizations

Department of Transportation (DOT) regulated medical certification / re-certification 

The Federal Motor Carriers Safety Regulations (FMCSR) require that most of the commercial vehicle operators on the road today be certified by a medical examiner. Our occupational health providers are current on the latest Commercial Driver's License (CDL) regulations and guidelines, offering medical examinations that ensure only safe and healthy individuals are behind the wheel.

Substance Abuse Programs

  • Programs can be designed to assist you in providing a drug-free workplace or to meet federal requirements (DOT, FAA). We offer placement screening, reasonable cause, post accident or random testing programs with Certified Medical Review Officers.

Medical surveillance / Screening programs

Medical surveillance and regulatory screening

Corporate Health’s medical surveillance programs comply with all Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards and sound medical practice. Determination of each individual company's needs will be based on many factors including exposure, duration of exposure, physical effort, and other factors that may have an effect on the employee.
In certain cases of exposure (i.e. asbestos, lead, bloodborne, etc.) OSHA standards govern the testing protocols. Our respiratory surveillance service can also be performed on-site at your facility.

Specialized Programs

Medical Directorship/Oversight Agreements

Smaller companies are affected by the same worker's compensation statutes, OSHA standards and ergonomic concerns as a large employer, but cannot justify the expense of a full time physician. This is a situation where a contract medical director can help. A trained occupational medicine physician can provide the expertise needed on an occasional or regular basis as demand dictates.

Services can be provided on-site, via telephone, e-mail or even through a televideo link. Experienced Occupational medicine physicians are the only doctors with the broad-based training necessary to meet these challenges. The areas where a contract medical director can assist an employer include: disability management and work fitness, workplace health and surveillance, hazard recognition, evaluation and control, clinical occupational medicine, and health promotion and clinical prevention.
