Fit For Duty
Our Fit for Duty Program is designed to prevent workplace injuries. Injury prevention ensures that employees can physically perform the job tasks. Injury prevention begins with your new employees, and ensuring new hires can physically perform the tasks required for jobs in your company. We measure the physical demands, and then test an employee’s ability to perform those jobs. We combine a detailed knowledge of the jobs at your company, with the medical expertise to make certain that the employees you hire have the capacity to perform the essential functions of their job safely.
We start with a detailed assessment of each job’s physical and mental requirements, which we then translate into a specific, customized testing program overseen by our team of occupational health experts. With this combination of analysis & examination, we can help put the right person in the right job at the right time.
