Firefighters face a wide range of physical and psychological challenges in their line of duty. Surveillance examinations help ensure that firefighters can physically perform their duties. Regular physical examinations help assess an officer’s overall health to ensure they are safe while working and that they are not experiencing adverse health effects from their work, as their work can involve exposure to hazardous environments that may place them at risk. Early detection of health issues allows for appropriate medical intervention and preventive measures.
The Medix healthcare team will work with the fire department to tailor thorough and OSHA-compliant surveillance exams to monitor and maintain the health and well-being of firefighters.
Medix surveillance exams can be tailored to departmental needs consistent with NFPA guidelines.
