Employees are a businesses most valuable asset—and often its largest expense. Finding just the right workers with just the right mix of skills and work ethic is a challenge. And in positions with high levels of physical stress and strain, the right level of physical ability is equally important to productivity and the bottom line.

The pre-employment FCE would form a baseline for a worker prior to employment and assist the employer to select the best candidate for the role. This assessment will detect any previous injuries and highlight areas of concern for both the employee and employer.

Pre-employment FCE’s can be performed for light, medium and heavy roles, testing against specific physical demands required for each role, with feedback provided as to the workers suitability for their proposed role. Education is also provided to the worker for any potential injury risks identified during testing.

One of the biggest frustrations many businesses have with their pre-employment provider is customer service. If we identify any candidate that is not fit for role, we will attempt to contact you to discuss the candidate and the appropriate classification.

Objective measurements of physical capabilities including movement, strength, postural tolerance, cardiovascular fitness and manual handling techniques are used to gauge the worker’s current capacity when compared to baseline data for a job role. All tests performed within our FCE’s are evidence based and functionally relevant to the job roles.

Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs) can be used to recognise an appropriate candidate or to identify persons who have musculoskeletal disorders, and may be exposed to imminent risk of injury and may require a change in their work capacity. They can also be used to aid in the rehabilitation process post injury to ensure durable return to work outcomes and improved recovery times.

Objective measurements of physical capabilities including movement, strength, postural tolerance, cardiovascular fitness and manual handling techniques are used to gauge the worker’s current capacity and can be compared to baseline data for a job role. All tests performed within our FCEs are evidence based and are functionally relevant to the job role.

Biosymm believes an FCE should adhere to the following principles:

  • Safety – Given the known characteristics of the subject, proper administration of the FCE measure should not be expected to lead to injury.
  • Reliability – FCE measures should be dependable within the test trial and across evaluators, patients and the date or time of test administration
  • Validity – The decision based on interpretation of the score derived from the FCE measure should reflect the subject’s true ability.
  • Practicality – The cost of administration, interpretation, and reporting of the FCE should be reasonable.
  • Utility – The overall value of the FCE to its users

Comprehensive FCE’s (PWPE – Physical Work Performance Evaluation) are detailed, objective, in-depth assessments performed by specifically trained physiotherapists within our team. This type of FCE can be used for the following:

  • Workers who have had a prolonged return to work process
  • Workers who have significant complications or multiple injuries
  • Where there are questions regarding sincere effort
  • Where there is potential for legal involvement

The FCE itself can take anywhere from 4-6 hours to perform which allows us to measure the consistency of effort through a validity and behavioural profile whilst performing a job specific assessment. This measurement of compliance can be particularly useful when a worker’s motivation may be in question or where a case is particularly complicated.

One of the criticisms of a PWPE assessment can be the reporting which can be vague and requires some interpretation. Following the evaluation our physiotherapist will provide you with the software report as well as a cover letter which will explain the report, make suggestions as to next steps and can be used to answer any specific questions you have regarding the evaluation.

Return to work (RTW) FCEs can be used for a worker who has sustained an injury (work related or non-work related); that injury may have improved and/or resolved, and the employer wants to establish if they meet the physical demands of their role to ensure they can safely return to work.

Alternatively, if not fully recovered, suitable duties can be recommended for that worker as part of a return to work program whilst they continue to recover from the injury.

Biosymm has developed standardised RTW templates and detailed instructions, which can be provided to our comprehensive provider network across all capital cities within Australia, some regional areas and New Zealand to safeguard and streamline the return to site for injured workers. The assessment is then reviewed by Biosymm and the results converted to an easy-to-read format before it is provided to the employer.

The simple goal of a return to work (RTW) FCE is to accurately and safely identify the capability of the worker compared to their current role in order to assist the injury management team. A return to work FCE would entail similar testing relative to a pre-employment FCE but with more testing surrounding the specific area of injury.

Performed by the physiotherapist, screening and testing of the affected body parts provides an indication as to the workers current capacity when combined with baseline data for unaffected parts. This information can then be used to predict those duties a worker is able to perform safely and is delivered as a job match comparison. Using job role information we can also report comparing the worker to the entire role, as well as compare the abilities to each task as a suggestion to the employer.
