GIS’ Wellness and Medical Services run the gamut from pre-employment physicals to post-hire wellness programs. Our clients can electronically track renewable medical services (like vaccines) by utilizing our state-of-the-art credential management platform.

Anthropometric Size Restrictions (ASR)

Clinician performs multiple size measurements, i.e. weight, chest circumference, waist circumference, etc. per client specific instructions to ensure the employee meets the size requirements for an employer specific vehicle.


Audiograms measure a person’s hearing. Most audiograms cover a range that encompasses the fundamental sounds of speech, plotting the threshold of the individual’s hearing relative to “normal” hearing.

Cotinine Testing

The Oral Fluid Device is a disposable saliva-based nicotine test that tests for cotinine (the primary metabolite of nicotine). It is administered via oral swab and safely self-contained. Results are delivered within 10 minutes and are 97.6% accurate.

Chest X-ray/Chest Radiograph

A chest X-ray is a projection radiograph of the chest used to diagnose conditions affecting the chest, its contents, and nearby structures. Chest radiographs are among the most common films taken, serving as a diagnostic of many conditions. They may be taken in different views depending on the presenting symptoms. This is a commonly ordered X-ray used to clear a person with a positive PPD/TB skin test.

Cholestech LDX® System

The Cholestech LDX System efficiently tests cholesterol and related lipids, blood glucose and liver enzymes to serve as diagnostic tools that provide information for immediate risk assessment of heart disease, inflammatory disorders and diabetes. No special training is required and results are returned in just 15 minutes.

DOT or DOT look-alike Physical Exam

These physical exams are performed in accordance with DOT regulations. They include tests on general appearance, genitourinary system, abdomen and ears and hearing. Exams can be performed using ePhysical® digital exam software and can use either paper or electronic exam form.


An EKG is used to indicate the overall rhythm of the heart and weaknesses in different parts of the heart muscle.

Height/Weight/Blood Pressure

Clinicians measure the specified criteria for wellness program participation and/or employer criteria for specific job functions. Results are noted in a medical review for adherence to guidelines.

Lift Assessment – Kraus-Weber

The Kraus-Weber (K-W) Test of Minimum Muscular Fitness measures several large muscle groups for flexibility and strength.

OSHA Respirator Questionnaire

When OSHA requires a respirator, the employee must fill out a questionnaire as part of the medical evaluation to determine if the employee is physically/psychologically able to wear a respirator. The questionnaire content is mandated by the OSHA respiratory protection standard and must be reviewed by a Physician or Licensed Health Care Professional (PLHCP). Based on the questionnaire responses, the PLHCP may require additional testing including a physical exam, chest X-ray, EKG or pulmonary function test (PFT), to clear an employee for respirator use.

Pulmonary Function Test/Spirometry

Pulmonary function tests measure how well the lungs take in and release air and how well they move gases (e.g. oxygen) into the body’s circulation. For some of the test measurements, you can breathe normally and quietly. Other tests require forced inhalation or exhalation after a deep breath.

Respirator Fit Test – Qualitative & Quantitative

The qualitative test is a pass/fail test relying on the subject’s voluntary or involuntary response to a challenge agent; i.e., taste, smell, or irritation. The quantitative respirator fit test measures the challenge agent leakage into the respirator without dependence on a test subject’s voluntary or involuntary response to the challenge agent.


Particularly if you are working with a vulnerable population, it can be incredibly important for your employees to have an immunity to communicable diseases. Sometimes individuals will have a natural immunity to a disease, precluding the need for a vaccine. This can be determined by performing a titer test. If the individual has no natural immunity, GIS can have the vaccine administered. Available vaccine/titers include: Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A/B, MMR (Measles, Mumps & Rubella), TB (Tuberculosis), Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) and Varicella (Chicken Pox and related diseases).

Vision Tests

GIS offers a variety of vision tests. The combination of Ishihara, Jaeger, Snellan and Titmus tests helps determine the strength of an individual’s sight via a variety of metrics: color-blindness, near and far vision, depth perception, muscle balance and peripheral vision.
