A functional physical assessment of an employee's ability to perform a job can be made for new employees. The key elements of the screen are based on the essential functions of a worker's job or rotation of jobs and, therefore, are a true representation of the job requirements rather than a generalized strength testing, making it ADA compliant. A particular emphasis is placed on demonstrating the required tasks using safe body mechanics so the assessment/screen doubles as an educational tool. Other baseline information is also gathered including relevant range of motion, strength and sensation measurements.
We also can provide additional Drug screens in addition to the physical screen testing.
