Learn effective methods to reduce or eliminate injury risks in the workplace.

Post-offer employment testing is a method where organizations may screen new-hire candidates for the ability to perform the essential functions of a job, while also screening for pre-existing medical conditions or injuries.

Both methods affect early intervention to injury risks, safety compliance, and ongoing best work practices.

Key takeaways include:

  • The relationship between the Physical
    Demands Analysis and ergonomics

  • Benefits to using the Physical Demands
     Analysis

  • The role of post-offer employment testing
