A Pre-hire Physical Ability Test (PAT) program works to ensure that workers you hire are well-matched in terms of physical capabilities to the everyday demands of the jobs into which they will be placed. The testing adds a new element of accuracy to the hiring process, reducing bad hires and employee turnover. PAT assists in Injury Prevention by increasing workplace safety and lowering injury rates among your workers and thus reducing the high costs associated with those injuries.
Pre-hire screens are the first step toward a safer, more productive, less injury-prone workforce – and significant savings. Multiple case studies with employer clients show 60% decline in direct workers’ compensation costs in one to two years after testing starts.
