What is a Pre Employment assessment?

The Physio Movement Pre employment functional assessments, or Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs) are a series of examinations that allow us to provide information on an individual’s physical strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness. This information is usually requested by a potential employer and can help determine if individuals are physically capable of performing the tasks required of that specific job role.  A pre employment assessment or Functional Capacity Evaluation can also help categorise if the individual is high or low risk for injuries on a job site.

Has your employer requested a Pre employment functional assessment?

At The Physio Movement we conduct Pre employment assessments prior to starting a new job, returning to work following an injury or accident, or requested check-ups from your employer. Functional assessments are to assist in ensuring employees are not put in workplace situations which may put them at risk of injury, protecting both the employee and the employer.

How long will a Pre employment assessment take?

Our Pre Employment assessments will take one hour to complete with our trained Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists.
