Fitness for Duty Functional Assessment (FFDF)

A Fitness for Duty Assessment may be considered to ensure an employee is physically fit and capable of performing the tasks associated with their role and can be essential in risk management. Businesses may refer for a clinical assessment of their worker’s physical capacity when:

– There are frequent or prolonged absence(s) from work.

– A worker is certified unfit to perform their role or parts of their role.

– An employee intends to return to work following absence for a non-work-related injury/medical condition.

– To determine a worker’s functional capacity to safely perform the inherent requirements of their role following an injury or medical condition.

We recommend discussing your requirements when scheduling the assessment and providing us with the physical requirements of the role.
