Our Pre-Employment Functional Assessments are a valuable part of the recruitment process and help build a strong foundation for a productive and healthy workforce. Our allied health professionals conduct PEFAs for a broad range of occupations and industries, with a strong background in assessing musculoskeletal issues and fitness for work.
Our PEFAs are always based on latest evidence and best practice - using robust, objective assessment tools which are regularly reviewed. We incorporate a detailed medical questionnaire, thorough musculoskeletal screening and physical testing into our PEFAs in conjunction with functional assessment components, all tailored to the inherent requirements of the role.
We provide assessment outcomes based on current capacity, offering recommendations for reasonable adjustment where appropriate. For complex presentations, we facilitate referrals to GPs or occupational physicians for further investigation. Should specific workplace concerns arise, Altius Group offers a range of value-add options, such as drug and alcohol screening, audio screening and vision screening for distance, near and colour vision.
