DOT physicals are part of the job for those who drive commercial motor vehicles, including trucks and buses, or those who operate heavy machinery, like cranes. The team at LaGrange Medical Center is pleased to offer DOT physicals that meet the requirements of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
Driving a truck and operating heavy machinery requires attentiveness. Some medical conditions can make it difficult to do so safely. Because of the size and power of these vehicles and machines, it is imperative that the driver or operator has no underlying medical conditions that would make it unsafe for that individual to operate the machine or drive the vehicle. The purpose of the DOT physical is to determine if there are any medical conditions that would interfere with the driver’s ability to operate a piece of equipment or drive a commercial vehicle safely.
