Post Offer Pre-Placement Screens
Post Offer Pre-Placement Screens will evaluate the applicant’s physical ability to perform essential job functions as described in a specific job description provided by the client and will ensure that the physical attributes of the candidate match the physical requirements of the position. The components of the pre-placement screenings consist of work specific tasks, cardiovascular assessment, strength abilities, range of motion, dexterity, agility and flexibility assessment. The components will differ according to the job description and the physical demands of the specific position being assessed. Components can be tailored to meet specific needs of the employer and position.
Job Descriptions
Job descriptions can be evaluated for new positions or existing descriptions can be modified to incorporate the existing physical demands of a current position. If requested, a job site analysis can be performed to identify essential job functions.
Preventative Intervention Program
Preventative intervention analyzes a company’s injury trends by body part or work station and offers the client custom services designed to eliminate injuries and cut costs while complying with OSHA standards and maintaining client production. This proactive approach focuses on factors which influence the development of injuries and decrease the progression of symptoms, through early awareness, and early intervention. These programs are especially beneficial to clients with repetitive motion assignments.
Ergonomic Analysis
Ergonomic analysis provides for a comparison between the current work environment and the ideal scenario. An initial evaluation is completed on each work station and an analysis is completed of the employees’ posture, heights of workstations, hand position and other items affecting job function. Recommendations are then made to help ensure that the workstations are modified to maximize productivity in an efficient and pain-free work environment.
