Pre-Employment Functional Assessment
Is Your Potential Employee Fit Work?
Pre-employment assessments are now commonplace to ensure that you are not risking injury to your future employees or even those returning from 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. We can assess whether your employee is at a high or low risk of work injury in simple terms. 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 role within your company.
A pre-employment functional assessment can be used in conjunction with a pre-employment medical assessment undertaken by a doctor.
PhysioWorks can provide you with generic or specific pre-employment assessments depending on your needs.

- Overal posture & postural fatigue
