How Do You Know If the New Hire Can Perform the Physical Demands of the Job? It’s All About the Hiring Process! By Your Marque Team
A properly constructed new hire process can reduce the incidence of work-related incidents and costs if your company has a history of costly claims in high-risk material handling jobs.
We have identified legally defensible methodology to reduce work-related incidents and it starts with the hiring process. Every company has claims that could have been avoided by having a proper hiring process and/or safe placement. In addition, many claims will come to resolution with the following:
- Quantified measurements of the job specific demands
- New hire pre-injury status performance benchmarks
- Job specific rehab protocols replicating the test battery for return-to-work
- Permanent and stationary status
- Quantification of pre-injury status benchmarks that may reduce disability ratings
As a resource to your human resources new hire process, we will introduce our Physical Abilities Testing to assist in reducing work-related incidents as a prevention measure that is legally defensible.
Let’s identify “home grown” tests and industrial clinic testing that have not been validated, not in compliance, not defensible, no transfer of liability and protect our jobs and companies from potential litigation.
No one desires to see a co-worker injured and fall into the failed workers’ compensation system and opioid epidemic.
No company regardless of size is exempt from discrimination exposure or providing a safe work environment inclusive of the hiring process.
