Employment Testing

Employment testing is vital for a safe and healthy workforce.

Safe and healthy employees can help lower worker compensation injuries as well as increase productivity. Deciding whether or not to implement employment testing and what kind of tests can be a frustrating task. There are many reasons why employers should implement employment testing such as:

  • Increased productivity
  • Decreased workplace injuries
  • Less turnover and more employee retention
  • Legally defensible
  • Better return-to-work program

Knowing you are matching the worker to the work and that the employee is physically capable of the work can lead to lower costs, less absenteeism and happier more loyal employees.
