    I don't think it's like a d.o.t physical. I didn't know if it was running or walking at brisk pace on treadmill, going up and down stairs with weight, lifting above head and carrying.

    No it's not like a D.O.T. physical. It is a workout planned over a period of time doing varies lifting,bending and walking. I think it last's about an hour and they test you to see if you can do what is required of you to perform your general work as a UPS driver. You have to be able to lift a certain amount of weight(70lbs.) and do it correctly and properly. I think that may cover it.

    After a serious comp injury or even after a non-work injury I think.

    That must be new.
