How Our Pre Employment Assessment Determines Suitability
A pre employment functional capacity assessment is a safeguard that protects you against the possibility of hiring an employee that is carrying an old or previous injury, or who does not meet the required physical capacity to carry out the job they have applied for.
At Corporate Work Health Australia, we ask three key questions using the JobFit System PEFA, which are:
- Does the candidate have an existing injury?
- Have they demonstrated the physical ability required to carry out the inherent requirements of the job?
- Are they at an increased level of risk with regards to sustaining further injury, and if so, what can be done about it?
The importance of carrying out this functional assessment cannot be understated because it essentially is a means to ensuring that your new hire is suitable for the work and is less likely to increase the risk of being injured or causing injury to the rest of your workforce.
New entrants into any company are the most likely to sustain a workplace injury within their first months on your premises. This stems from a lack of knowledge of the site, getting to grips with the processes and procedures but also as a result of not having the capacity to comfortably and confidently complete their work.
Any employer that hires a person, fully aware that they have an existing issue fails in their duty of care to both that person and their own staff, particularly where the job they will fulfil involves work that may prove taxing and stressful, and might cause that injury to recur. We also carry our pre-employment medical assessments to ensure the candidate is physically and mentally in the right state for the role.
