Annual Physical Examination

A physical examination is an evaluation of the body and its functions using inspection, palpation (feeling with the hands), percussion (tapping with the fingers), and auscultation (listening).

This is done on a yearly interval to ensure an employee continues to be physically fit for his present job.

An APE is considered a major preventive program emphasizing on promoting health, detecting illness at the earliest stage, and determining present health status as a follow-up to previous medical results or findings.
