After recovering from an injury, it is important that an employee resumes working only when it is safe for them to do so. Medix can perform these evaluations to determine if the employee has recovered and is able to safely return to work, and can identify any necessary accommodations.

Assessing the recovery progress and establishing the appropriate time for an employee to return helps avoid any further damage or re-injury.

Fitness-for-Duty Examinations

Fitness-for-duty exams are a type of return-to-work evaluation that confirms whether or not an individual can safely execute a specific task or job. These exams are essential for maintaining workplace safety and preventing injuries.

At times they are required before an employee begins working, but typically take place after an employee has recovered from an injury or illness and is ready to return to work.
