Fit-for-task Assessments

This is a physical assessment of an employee’s capacity to safely carry out a job.

It is not as formal as a functional capacity evaluation and may not involve WorkCover at all.

About Fit-for-task assessments

You may wish to perform a Fit-for-task assessment if:

  • An employee has been injured outside of the workplace and you would like to ensure they are ready to return to full duties
  • An employee on light duties is placed on further restrictions
  • An employee is claiming that they can no longer perform the inherent requirements of the role without pain
  • To determine if the employee requires any restrictions, whether temporary or permanent, placed on them performing their role

How do Fit-for-task assessments benefit your business?

  • Ensure employees returning to work are able to perform the inherent requirements of their role
  • Assist with ongoing rehabilitation strategies
