Before returning to duty from any non-work related or work-related illness or injury, this testing determines the employee’s ability to handle the physical demands of the job. Fit for Duty testing is developed from the data collected in the Job Demand Analysis and each exam is unique to each employer and their positions. What is examined is determined by the essential functions of the job, which may include lifting heavy objects, maneuvering into small spaces, crouching or standing for long periods of time, etc.
By performing a Fit for Duty Test, the employer can better understand whether or not the employee can perform the essential functions of the job upon returning to work after an injury or medical leave of absence. Fit for Duty testing has been proven to decrease turnover and its associated costs.
