Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)
Functional capacity evaluation (FCE) is often used to assess a worker’s functional ability relevant to a specific job role.
This is used to help understand if the worker is safe to perform the job role and whether there may be any risks involved.
Following the assessment, a report is completed and this involves classifying the worker as low or high risk of injury.
Some of the areas of assessment include:
- Joint range of motion
- Muscular Strength
- Cardiovascular Fitness
- Manual Handling Capacity
