Pre-employment Testing

Pre-employment testing is an adopted hiring practice to ensure potential candidates are suited and have the physical capabilities to comply with the physical demands of a specific work environment. Based on the site visit, customized screening tools and tests are developed specifically to the physical demands of work. Pre-employment testing procedures and work specific tasks will be identified and conducted when job hiring demands dictate.

Testing and screening can provide the following benefits to the employer:

  • Minimizing poor hire decisions by selectively identifying those potential employees not capable of safely performing the demands of the work
  • Physical screening measures will ensure workers are safe and capable of performing job duties
  • Objective and non-discriminatory testing
  • Reduces frequency of injury
  • Reduces medical costs and time loss from work
