Ensuring physically capabilities in the workplace.
A pre-placement (post offer) exam is a medical examination to determine the employee’s ability to perform the essential physical demands of the job and to verify that the employee does not pose a significant risk of harm to self and others. Only after a candidate has been found to be otherwise qualified (by education, training, credentials, experience, skills, and so forth) for a position and has been offered a job, may the employer require a medical examination.
Post Offer (Pre-Placement) Testing is designed to ensure that new employees are physically capable of performing the job they have been hired for. The screening testing asseses the employees ability to perform the physical demands of the job based on the requirements dictated in the Physical Demands Analysis.
