Pre-Employment Functional Assessments

A Pre-Employment Functional Assessment is an evaluation of an individuals physical capacity to safely perform the critical demands of their job role. It is KINNECT’s experience that Pre-Employment Functional tests provide maximal benefit when based upon the specific physical demand requirements of an applicants proposed or existing job role.

What is a Functional Capacity Assessment?

A Pre-Employment Functional Assessment is an evaluation of an individuals physical capacity to safely perform the critical demands of their job role. It is KINNECT’s experience that Pre-Employment Functional tests provide maximal benefit when based upon the specific physical demand requirements of an applicants proposed or existing job role.

It is standard practice for KINNECT to develop job specific functional testing protocols in which the high risk functional demands of a specific role is in part or in full assessed at the time of the functional assessment.  Job specific functional assessments can be developed on review of your companies existing Job Task Analyses (JTA’s).  In the event that your companies JTA’s are not available or the existing documents do not provide the appropriate objective information from which job specific testing paperwork can be devised, KINNECT can update or develop new JTA’s so as to ensure the most comprehensive risk mitigation procedures are applied.
