  • Baseline health assessment: They establish a baseline for your overall health, aiding in the identification of changes over time.
  • Occupational requirements: DOT Physicals are mandatory for individuals involved in safety-sensitive roles in the transportation industry, ensuring their fitness for duty.
  • Sports participation: Sports physicals are crucial for athletes, ensuring they are in good health and can safely engage in physical activities.
