After you’ve been offered a job with essential physical requirements, you may be asked to complete a pre-placement test or Human Performance Evaluation (HPE). The HPE is customized to the specific responsibilities of the job and only screens for skills that are needed on a regular basis. The intention is to protect you from potentially getting injured on the job.
Return to Work Physical:
Return-to-work physical exams help to ensure that it’s safe for you to go back to work after an injury. If you’re not ready, they help determine when it would be right for you to return to work. This reduces your risk of getting injured again. One of Concentra’s most common return-to-work physicals is the “Functional Capacity Evaluation” (FCE).
