Mobile Medical Testing Simplifies Workplace Health & Safety


Are you still sending employees off-site for medical testing?

Employers take on additional liability and loss of productivity when they send employers to off-site clinics for testing. Now, mobile medical surveillance makes it possible for employers to manage job sites as well as the health and safety of their employees.

Mobile medical surveillance and testing involves the provision of medical surveillance services on-site, often tailored to meet specific industry requirements such as audiometric exams, respirator fit testing, OSHA physicals, lab work, and more.

These services are conducted by certified technicians and medical providers who comply with industry health testing standards, ensuring convenient and compliant testing for employees.

Mobile medical testing helps enhance your workplace safety by offering convenient scheduling options, maintaining health records securely, and providing quick access to test results, ultimately contributing to improved occupational health outcomes.

The best part? These mobile clinics come right to your jobsite, meaning your team never needs to leave.

Mobile Medical Testing Simplifies Workplace Health & Safety


Are you still sending employees off-site for medical testing?

Employers take on additional liability and loss of productivity when they send employers to off-site clinics for testing. Now, mobile medical surveillance makes it possible for you to manage your job site, as well as the health and safety of your employees.

When employers choose to send their workers off-site for testing, they make themselves liable for any accidents that may occur to and from the testing lab.


Worker’s Compensation & Off-Site Injuries


Because employees are technically “at work,” any incidents, such as car accidents, that occur on company time could result in insurance and/or workers’ compensation claims.

According to,:

“In general, workers will be eligible for worker’s compensation for injuries that occur away from the job site if the injury is work-related.  Determining whether an injury is work-related can be somewhat confusing, so courts generally look to see whether the injury was caused by the employment.”

Some off-site injuries that are typically covered include injuries that occur:

  • While traveling if the employee is a traveling salesperson with no fixed job site, or the employer provides the employee’s transportation through a company car or by reimbursing the employee for travel expenses;


  • During a company-sponsored event, such as a Christmas party, as long as it is company-sponsored and not just employees getting together on their own;


  • During a company-sponsored recreational activity, such as a company fitness program to increase employee health or a team-building event for the office;


  • During a recreational activity to entertain potential clients.


Effects on Productivity


Additionally, employers often lose productivity on the worksite by sending their teams to off-site locations and clinics..

It can take hours, or even entire work days, for workers to get tested and wait for the results.

In rural areas, simply traveling to the nearest clinic may take several hours — and employers could be responsible for paying travel expenses.

Employers are tasked with striking a balance between convenience and efficiency, along with thoroughness and safety, on their worksites. Worksite testing is an important part of worker safety and health, and shouldn’t compromise those essentials.


What Workplace Mobile Medical Surveillance & Testing Covers


Workplace mobile medical surveillance & testing cover numerous aspects aimed at ensuring the health and safety of workers. Key areas include:

  1. Occupational Health Assessments: Mobile units provide on-site health assessments for employees, including pre-employment medical examinations, periodic health screenings, and fitness-for-duty evaluations.


  2. Biological Monitoring: Testing for exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace through biological samples such as blood, urine, or breath analysis to monitor occupational exposure levels and ensure compliance with safety regulations.


  3. Respiratory Health Monitoring: Conducting tests such as pulmonary function tests (PFTs) to assess lung function and screen for respiratory conditions related to workplace exposures, such as asthma or occupational lung diseases. Additionally, respirator fit-testing can be conducted, as well as all other aspects of a respiratory health program which are required to stay in compliance.


  4. Hearing Conservation Programs: Mobile units offer audiometric testing to monitor hearing health and detect early signs of noise-induced hearing loss among workers exposed to high noise levels in the workplace.


  5. Drug and Alcohol Testing: Providing on-site drug and alcohol testing services for workplace substance abuse screening, including pre-employment testing, random testing, and post-incident testing to ensure a safe work environment and comply with regulatory requirements.


  6. Ergonomic Assessments: Mobile units conduct ergonomic assessments to evaluate workplace setups and identify ergonomic risk factors that may contribute to musculoskeletal disorders, providing recommendations for ergonomic improvements and injury prevention strategies.


  7. Health and Safety Training: Offering on-site health and safety training sessions for employees to raise awareness about occupational hazards, proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE), and injury prevention measures.


  8. Health Risk Assessments: Conducting comprehensive health risk assessments to identify potential health risks associated with specific job roles or workplace environments and implementing preventive measures to mitigate these risks.


  9. Infectious Disease Screening: Conducting screenings for infectious diseases such as tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis, or COVID-19 in workplaces where there is a risk of transmission, implementing preventive measures, and facilitating vaccination programs.


  10. Emergency Response Preparedness: Mobile units may provide training and drills for emergency response teams, offer medical support during workplace emergencies, and ensure the availability of medical supplies and equipment for first aid and emergency treatment.


Long-term benefits of Mobile Medical Surveillance and Testing


Sure, mobile medical surveillance provides short-term benefits like convenience and reduced downtime. But, they go even further than that.

Long-term benefits include:

  1. Enhanced workplace safety due to increased compliance with regulatory guidelines;
  2. Reduced liability associated with off-site testing, and
