As an employer, you want to hire employees that are physically capable of performing the essential job functions on day one of employment while also reducing new hire injuries and re-injuries after employees return to work. Can you tell from a resume if someone is physically capable to perform the job? Can you be sure by looking whether he/she can use a flat head screwdriver to drive over eighteen screws every five minutes into place? While you can never predict future injuries, there are ways to determine the possibility of an injury based on physical conditions that exist at hiring.
Benefits of a Pre-Employment Screening
A pre-employment screening is a series of tests, actions, and observations that is given to ensure that the physical needs of a position can be met by the potential candidate. This type of testing is an efficient way of gathering insights into the abilities of applicants and can help you gather accurate data which enables a confident decision to hire.
Also, pre-employment screening is a way for you to be sure that a candidate can handle the position's workload without risk of injury and workers' compensation claims. While the Center For Physical Health only tests for the physical aspects of the position, pre-employment screenings can also look into the candidate's criminal background, past employment, credit history, driving record, and more.
How WorkerFIT can help
To begin, WorkerFIT drives the creation, review, and maintenance of functional job analyses. This information provides the essential functions, qualifications, work schedule, physical demands, and environmental conditions that builds the pre-employment screening. The worker fitness exam module within WorkerFIT enables the design and consistent administration of pre-employment screenings through a secure, electronic reporting portal. This portal is accessible by examiners in multiple sites to provide consistent screenings. In conjunction with the candidate interview, pre-employment screenings/tests delivered specific to your functional job analyses provides an accurate picture of a candidate's potential to be successful in the position. Different tests measure different qualities, but in the end, screenings give you relevant information that cannot be gleaned from the job interview process alone.
