Functional Capacity Evaulations & Ergonomic Assessments
Improving Workplace Performance & Safety
Every business owner wants their employees to work efficiently and every employee wants to make sure they’re working in a safe environment. Partnering with PT Northwest can help both business owners and employees meet those goals. We perform functional capacity evaluations and ergonomic assessments, which can help both employees and their employers set reasonable expectations for work output, increasing both safety and productivity.
FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY EVALUATIONS
Functional Capacity Evaluations are a comprehensive test battery that examines an individual’s perceived levels of function and actual abilities while also looking at aspects such as effort, competitive test performance and cross references this data to specific job descriptions. Whether it’s being used to evaluate a new hire or an employee returning from injury, our tests can help determine if the individual can physically perform the job requirements or can help maximize the employees’ abilities.
Ergonomic assessments are a great way to evaluate the safety of your workplace for your employees. Our experts will tour your facility to identify potential musculoskeletal risks that could be harmful to employees. We will also provide you with solutions to address each of our findings to prevent future injuries.
ERGONOMIC TRAINING COURSES
PT Northwest will educate business owners and their employees by presenting topics such as ergonomic concepts and body mechanics to show how they relate to work performance. We relate these topics to work performance and instruct you on how to incorporate them into your business. Our experts will provide exercises that employees can perform to reduce the likelihood of injuries.
