  • Functional Job Description (FJD)
  • Pre-Work Screens
  • Job rotation, modified duty, or transitional work programs
  • New employee educational programs
  • Fitness and conditioning programs
  • Accommodations for disabled employees

Functional Job Descriptions

Pre-Work Screens

A formal assessment of the job applicant’s current physical abilities to ensure they can meet the physical demands of the job.

Work Ability Screen or Fit for Duty Testing
