Pre-Employment & Ongoing Functional Assessment
A Functional Employment Assessment combines both Pre-Employment Functional Assessments and Ongoing Functional Assessments to provide employers and workers with an overall functional capacity evaluation that measures a person’s capacity for work.
These assessments can be utilised pre-employment and during employment to assess an persons capacity to work.
A tailored exercise program can be developed from the Functional Employment Assessment to target any areas of physical weakness, as well as identify specific tasks that may pose a risk of injury.
What is involved in a Functional Employment Assessment?
Our Physio Inq St Clair Functional Employment Assessment has been designed by Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists to suit any person and any job.
A Functional Employment Assessment includes:
- General Health, Movement and Strength Screening
- Full body fitness and strength assessments
- Assessment of health status and identification of weaker areas
- Personalised exercises to provide support and prevention of identified weaker areas
- Additional tests or screens required by workplace
At the end of a Functional Employment Assessment, your therapist will provide an east-to-read report for yourself and your employer.
If additional therapy is recommended, this will be provided in your report and a tailored program will be designed and taught to you during subsequent sessions.
When is the best time to do a Functional Employment Assessment?
A Functional Employment Assessment can be done at any point throughout the course of employment. It’s never too early or too late to prevent an injury!
