Law enforcement officers (LEOs) face a wide range of physical and psychological challenges in their line of duty. Surveillance examinations help ensure that law enforcement officers are physically capable of performing 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, and physical confrontations that may place the law enforcement officer at risk. Early detection of health issues allows for appropriate medical intervention and preventive measures.
Medix will work with police departments to tailor thorough and OSHA compliant law enforcement surveillance exams that are crucial in monitoring and maintaining the health and well-being of LEOs.
