Firefighters need regular post-employment physical agility testing

Firefighters have a noble but demanding mandate of protecting the community from disaster situations, including fires. As such, workers in this field are required to be physically and mentally fit to deal with the everyday hazards associated with their work. The demanding nature of firefighting also requires them to be assessed on a regular basis to ensure that they are meeting the physical criteria necessary to perform their tasks safely.

Post-employment physical agility tests monitor firefighters’ capability to meet the demands of their duty through scientific and quantifiable screening. Tests of this type should also be highly job-related, and should in no way discriminate against workers on the basis of race, age, or sex.

WorkSTEPS offers post-employment physical agility tests designed to accurately measure a firefighter’s capabilities, which he or she needs during the most critical phases of firefighting and other emergency situations. Call us at (512) 617-4100 to learn more about our services today.
