Can Injuries At Work Be Prevented?

There’s not a completely foolproof way of preventing workers from getting injured, but there is a way to minimize them.

Physical Ability Testing

A physical ability test measures an individual’s capacity to perform certain physical tasks. These tests are commonly used in the workplace to determine whether a team member can safely perform their job duties. Workers who have sustained an injury at work may be required to take a physical ability test before returning to work.

There are several benefits of taking a physical ability test:

  • Ensure that workers are physically capable of performing their job duties safely.

  • Help employers identify workers who may be at risk of sustaining an injury.

  • Help to protect teammates and reduce the workers’ compensation claims.
