Objectively Assessing a Worker's Physical Abilities

Ensuring the safety and well-being of employees is a business necessity for employers in industries such as construction, transportation, and manufacturing. That's why our BTE Fit-For-Duty Testing has become an essential occupational health tool for companies across the country to assess an individual's physical ability to perform their job duties.

Fit-For-Duty Testing, also known as FFD, is a comprehensive evaluation that assesses an individual's ability to perform the physical job demands, as written in their job description, safely and efficiently. They differ from Post-Offer Employment Testing as they are frequently used as a part of Return-to-Work processes when paired with medical examinations after an injury.

By conducting FFD evaluations, both employers and employees will reap benefits. From improved safety to increased productivity, our FFD Testing offers a wealth of advantages, including:



We ensure that your employees are physically capable of safelyperforming their job duties and essential functions of the job.

Some industries and jobs are regulated and require fit-for-duty testing to ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations.

medical records, and general medical information. We take that seriously.
