Pre-Employment Screening

Employees are a company’s greatest asset – are yours the right fit for the job?


If you want to hire a good asset, pre-employment screening is a must!

Pre-employment screening is a vital component of ensuring your candidate is workplace ready. Workplace injuries as a result of individuals not being physically capable of performing their role safely, is unfortunately still an issue in the workplace. Pre-employment screening involves your potential employees engaging in functional assessment screening alongside their medical testing as part of the recruitment process. Risk management is now more vital than ever in the workplace, and what better way to negate risk than pre-screening your candidates prior to them commencing a role with your company.

Pre-employment screening provides you with objective information pertaining to whether a  candidate is capable of successfully completing their physical work duties and in doing so, helps to facilitate your decision making. It is also beneficial in highlighting potential areas of risk for a candidate in a role, and allowing for these risks to be managed in the workplace.
