Preventing workplace injuries
Work Well’s Pre-employment Assessment uses computerised lift task and range of motion (ROM) assessment to accurately measure a patient’s flexibility, strength and lifting capacity. Importantly, they precisely quantify the physical capacity of a worker and demonstrate objectively their current functional capacity. They can be used prior to employment to ensure prospective employees can safely perform required workplace tasks.
The testing protocol is flexible and can be adjusted to replicate tasks from the workplace, providing meaningful and useful information. The computerised testing procedure also enables accurate identification of effort levels throughout the assessment. In doing so, it helps identify the presence of an injury and non-organic contributions to an individuals’ presentation.
Computerised testing is complemented by a range of other subjective and physical assessment procedures which provide a complete picture of the person being assessed in regard to physical ability and risk of injury. Incorporating Work Well’s pre-employment assessment as part of your recruitment process will provide an effective injury prevention strategy by identifying the ‘At Risk Worker’.
