What is a pre-employment assessment?
A pre-employment medical is an assessment undertaken by a worker prior to commencing employment in a new job. The primary purpose of a pre-employment assessment is to determine whether a worker will be able to adequately and safely perform the inherit requirements of the role.
Why conduct pre-employment functional assessments?
Pre-employment assessments are all about risk management. Every job has demands which employees must meet and pre-employment assessments provide an employer with insight into whether an individual has the required capacity for the position.
These assessments can also help employers to identify pre-existing injuries and determine musculoskeletal risks prior to employment, which allows the employer to implement reasonable adjustments and support the health of their workforce.
