Physical Capacity Evaluations

When hiring for a physically demanding job, you want to make sure the applicant is up to the task. That’s where WDTC’s isokinetic pre-employment and physical capacity evaluations can be a big help. Companies use these evaluations as a way to reduce work-related injuries and to ensure they’re not hiring someone with a pre-existing injury. During the evaluation, the potential hire is tested in several areas to make sure he or she can safety perform the necessary job functions.

CRT isokinetic testing matches the physical capabilities of the applicant to the physical job demands with 98% accuracy. During the evaluation, baseline measurements are captured by measuring the torque (strength) and range of motion for the back, knees and shoulders. The test takes 15 minutes to administer and results are faxed or e-mailed in less than 30 minutes.

This evaluation can help your business achieve:

  • A marked reduction in musculoskeletal injuries
  • Savings in workers compensation costs
  • Compliance with EEOC standards
  • Reduced insurance premiums
  • A safer work environment
