The pre-employment job simulation also known as a physical abilities tests is the second most common pre-employment test performed. However, less occupational clinics are willing or want to provide this type of physical, for it is more time consuming, requires more space and has to be tailored to a specific job position.
While it is helpful and useful to know if an employee has the physical maximum strengths to mimic the working tasks accomplished by a job task simulation, this type of physical exam alone does not document any preexisting physical impairments or old injuries not mentioned during the medical history. The one time simulation does not produce the employee's ability to safely replicate an activity consistently over a period of time and the employer is still unknowingly at risk that the old injury could become a Workmen's Comp claim over time.
