These assessments, which are similar to the pre-placement examination, are preventive in nature and stress the early detection of disease or predisposing factors to disease.
Employers are encouraged to provide these examinations free of charge, for a number of reasons:
- Early detection and treatment of illnesses protects employees
- Examinations reduce absenteeism related to illness
- They improve work productivity
- They often prevent long-term disability
