WorkSTEPS has evolved into a comprehensive provider of business, safety, and occupational health services, helping corporations improve health and safety while containing costs. WorkSTEPS helps employers hire smart, improve health and safety, reduce injury rates, and save money.
WorkSTEPS, the pioneer of post-offer pre-employment functional testing, was established by CEO and Founder Larry Feeler PT, CEAS, NRCME in 1986 to help industry employers reduce crippling workers compensation claims. The initial goal of the test was simple – to develop a medically-safe, legally-compliant, scientific, and objective way to match a prospective workers’ physical abilities with the physical demands of the job.
WorkSTEPS testing soon became an effective and popular tool for employers to reduce workers compensation claims and create safer workplaces. WorkSTEPS has since grown to be the largest national provider of functional employment testing, testing for thousands of employers through a national network of trained, certified, and managed providers.
As the industry evolves, WorkSTEPS is keenly aware that health is an essential component of a company’s most important asset – its people. With that in mind, WorkSTEPS merged with Eureco Health Solutions in 2018 and expanded its suite of services to become a comprehensive provider of business, safety, and occupational health services. Eureco brings new and expanded expertise to the WorkSTEPS team, including that of Chief Medical Officer Ben Hoffman, MD, MPH. Dr. Hoffman is a highly-seasoned physician executive with an extensive background in occupational and environmental health, clinical medicine, and transportation safety. He has worked for government agencies, non-profits, and multinational corporations including GE, Baker Hughes, Waste Management, Anheuser-Busch, and DuPont. Dr. Hoffman is active on numerous committees and boards including Global Health at the National Academy of Sciences/IOM, IPIECA/OGP, and former Chair, US DOT/FMCSA Medical Review Board.
