Existing Workers

The following WorkSTEPS tests are designed for existing employees:

POST-EMPLOYMENT PHYSICAL AGILITY TESTING

This non-medical agility testing may be used preventatively and may be administered periodically to ensure that existing employees continue to be able to meet the physical demand criteria necessary to safely perform the essential functions of the job. Employers may request this type of agility testing for all employees in a particular job class as part of their periodic monitoring to ensure that employees remain capable of performing physically demanding job tasks. This test is periodically administered on  employees in positions affecting public safety, such as firefighters and police officers, or as a re-certification requirement.

UPPER QUADRANT / CARPAL TUNNEL

The Upper Quadrant/Carpel Tunnel Testing is used to determine capability relative to repetitive job function, rather than heavy material handling tasks. This test may be used independently, as part of the comprehensive Pre-Employment Post-Offer Employment testing, or as a component to the Injured Worker Fit-for-Duty test if necessary.
