Fit-to-Work: encouraging safety and productivity
Fitness to work is an assessment offered by an employer who wants to ensure workplace safety and productivity. This evaluation is vital in securing the safety not only of injured or on-leave workers returning on duty, but also of the entire workforce should the working environment significantly change.
During job transfers, an employer may also request for fit to work to confirm that the existing employee will be able to meet the demands of the newly delegated task. A worker diagnosed with a medical condition can also be safely reassigned to other work duty with the help of this assessment.
Finding the right assessment to guarantee that the existing and returning workers are able to safely meet the demands of their duties is vital in ensuring workplace efficiency and safety. At WorkSTEPS, we provide employers with the right functional capacity assessment for existing and returning injured workers in compliance with relevant policies and regulations.
