Pre-Employment Functional Assessment
Is Your Potential Employee Fit to Work?
Pre-employment assessment are now commonplace to ensure that you are not risking injury to your future employees or even those employees returning form injury.
Pre-employment functional assessment or FCE (Functional Capacity Evaluation) provides you with a comprehensive array of information relating to a potential employee’s physical strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. In simple terms, we can assess whether your employee is a high or low risk of work injury. It also helps your employee to understand if they can perform the tasks required within a job role. It may also assist you with matching a worker to a suitable task or roles within your company.
A pre-employment functional assessment can be used in conjunction with a pre-employment medical assessment undertaken by a doctor.
