Functional Capacity Assessment
WorkFuture Ltd was selected to provide the Functional Capacity Assessments in conjunction with JobFit Systems Australia to assess the fitness and capacity of individuals before they were accepted to work in Australia. The testing includes strength, fitness, working postures, lifting and carrying ability. The fitness assessment was part of wider medical assessment to help identify if the individuals have the capacity to do the work required without posing a risk of injury to themselves.
