Jason Buss
HR manager
Camaco, Columbus

“We receive an efficient and effective pre-employment physical, with physician referral for potential candidates with a medical hold to evaluate fitness for duty. I would definitely recommend this service to other employers, because it helps mitigate risks and effectively manage those situations where accommodation may not be clear.”

Braulio Castillo
HR generalist
Columbus Hydraulics

“Columbus Hydraulics receives rapid results so that we can start new employees quicker. We benefit from increased health and safety of our employees.

We chose OHS for our pre-employment urine drug testing and physicals because of the friendly staff and the cost-effective program offered. When we schedule our candidates for pre-employment physicals, our candidates get in right away, and the results are immediate. We also utilize OHS for its post-accident drug testing, flu shot clinics, hearing conservation program, respiratory program and triage nursing services, to name a few.”
