Pre-Employment/Pre-Placement Exams Can Help You Find the Best Fit for Your Employees
Have you heard of Pre-Employment/Pre-Placement Exams? If not, we are happy to say we offer them at Therapy Solutions. They are a great way to test a potential employee’s physical capabilities and find the best fit for them within your company.
Pre-Employment/Pre-Placement Exams can also help detect any underlying issues that may be in need of treatment with one of our Dickinson, Killdeer, and Richardton, ND physical therapists. If that is the case, we will design a treatment plan based around the employee’s needs and the type of work they will be performing.
What do Pre-Employment/Pre-Placement Exams look like?
According to Concentra,
“Pre-placement exams help ensure that your prospective employee can safely perform the job they’re applying for. Because of this, pre-placement exams are an important part of the onboarding process – especially for physically intensive jobs.”
The physical exam for Pre-Employment/Pre-Placement consists of:
- Medical history
- Urinalysis (dipstick)
- Physician’s “hands on” exam
- Physician written opinion
In addition to this physical exam, the employee in question will also undergo a Physical Ability Test/Pre-Work Screen. This is a physical test based on the functional job description to ensure individuals can safely perform the critical demands of the job for which they applied.
Our Dickinson, Killdeer, and Richardton, ND physical therapists will work closely with your employee(s) to ensure that they are able to meet the physical requirements of their job position and address any problem areas that may be in need of physical therapy intervention.
