Exams and Screenings

Physical exams

The purpose of an exam or screening is to make sure your body is working properly. The results of a test/screening can help your provider identify any health issues or risk factors, which can then be addressed right away. Also, the results can help your provider determine if you can safely return to work after your injury or illness. St. Luke’s Occupational Medicine provides many different types of exams and screenings that can be tailored to your company’s needs or to the requirements of specific jobs.

DOT and non-DOT Testing


DOT Consortium

For employers who are regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT), St. Luke’s Occupational Medicine offers membership in its Random Drug & Alcohol Testing Consortium that meets DOT requirements. Membership in the consortium helps to minimize workplace conflict because employers are removed from the selection process.

Member employers provide a listing of employees who are subject to the regulations. Throughout the calendar year, periodic “pulls” of the entire consortium are made. (On average, consortium membership totals more than 1,000 employees.) The selection process is done via computer and is completely random.

(On average, consortium membership totals more than 1,000 employees.) The selection process is done via computer and is completely random.

All employees of consortium member companies have an equal chance of being selected each time a “pull” for drugs or alcohol is conducted. In other words, once an individual has been selected, that individual’s name is returned to the pool. That individual has the same chance of being selected during the next “pull.”

Non-DOT Random Testing

For employers who are non-federal and not subject to Department of Transportation regulations, we offer a random testing program similar to the consortium testing described above, but it is individualized to meet the specific needs of your company.

Member employers provide St. Luke’s Occupational Medicine with a list of employees who are subject to testing per the company’s policy. Random “pulls” are conducted throughout the year based on the percentages indicated by the company.
