Pre-Employment Medical Assessments (PEM) are risk assessment tools that support recruitment decisions by assessing an individual's ability to safely perform the inherent requirements of a specified job.
InjuryNET independently assesses and applies an innovative 'risk rating' to Pre-Employment Medicals. The risk rating indicates the likelihood of a prospective employee incurring or aggravating an injury in a specified job.
Musculoskeletal Functional Assessments are designed to give an indication of a workers’ general strength, function and overall level of conditioning. They may also assist in identifying musculoskeletal conditions previously unknown or disclosed.
