Fitness for Duty Examinations
Fitness-for-Duty examinations are designed to evaluate a mariner's suitability to work in the maritime environment. Evaluation of the medical information obtained during the examinations and decisions made must be made based on information that is job-specific and consistent with business necessity. The examination should be designed to evaluate a mariner's fitness-for-duty and must be consistently applied to all employees who are being considered for a given job.
- Pre-Placement Physical Examinations
These evaluations are the first step in a medical program. They are designed to establish the initial health status of an employee and to determine an employee's ability to execute assigned job duties in a safe and capable manner. The examinations are personalized in accordance with your company policy.
- Periodic Physical Examinations
These exams are performed annually or periodically as part of corporate medical or medical surveillance programs. The objective is to monitor changes in the employee's health status.
- Return to Work Examinations
After your employee recovers from an illness or injury, we provide Return to Work physicals to ensure he/she is able to return to sea and perform their required job duties.
