Pre-Employment Functional Capacity Assessments (PEFAs)

The ability of prospective employees to meet the physical demands and requirements of a job is essential to ensuring health and wellness within an organisation.

Pre-employment functional capacity assessments (PEFA’s) provide a comprehensive report on the functional strength and cardiovascular fitness of prospective employees to ensure they are fit to work in their potential job role.
Used in conjunction with a pre-employment medical assessment, PEFA’s can be used to effectively select new employees. An assessment often consists of an examination in the following areas:

  • Posture tolerances
  • Range of Movement
  • Strength
  • Manual Handling
  • Cardiovascular Fitness
