Physical capacities testing

Also known as: Functional capacity test

Strains, sprains and overexertion account for the majority of work-related injuries. Many injuries occur during the first year of employment. Physical capacity tests are objective measuring tools designed to determine whether an applicant possesses sufficient strength and ability to perform essential physical job tasks.  Physical capacity testing in conjunction with a pre-placement exam is often recommended for jobs that require a high level of strength and endurance.

Providence Occupational Health offers physical capacity testing for employers in the Portland metro and Newberg areas at our conveniently located clinics.
