B008 Match the Employee to the Job: Post Offer Pre-Employment Evaluations (Intermediate)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Topic Overview:

Post-offer medical examinations are critical to ensure that a prospective employee is well matched to the applied for job. A mismatch of the applicant’s ability to perform the essential job functions increases the chance of an on-the-job injury. A comprehensive post-offer pre-employment physical examination, including an assessment of the physical capabilities of the applicant in relationship to the essential physical demands of the job, is key to injury avoidance. The presentation reviews the rational and components, implications and costs of such an evaluation. Topics to be covered include the components of the exam, how to determine the physical demands of the job and the costs involved.



  1. Explain the inadequacy of a typical physical exam when mismatched to the physical demands of the job.
  2. Review the components of a post-offer, pre-employment evaluation.
  3. Explain how matching the employee to the job results in fewer injuries and cost savings associated with reduced injuries.
  4. Describe how job matching affects the potential growth of an occupational medicine practice when presented to employers.
