Medical Testing 2004 Survey

Nearly 63% of U.S. companies surveyed require medical testing of current employees or new hires, AMA's 2004 Medical Testing Survey shows. This figure is down from 68% in 2001 and from 70% in 2000, when AMA conducted similar medical testing surveys. Medical tests of all newly hired personnel are required in 47.5% of surveyed firms, and an additional 12.8% of companies test new hires in selected job categories. For current employees, the figures are lower: 7.4% of companies report that all employees are subject to periodic medical examinations, and an additional 23.6% require periodic exams of employees in selected job categories.
