FCE is a series of standardised tests, practices and observations that are combined to objectively assess a worker’s functional ability to complete work tasks safely. FCEs may be used to strategically develop Return-to-Work (RTW) Plans that allow light duties be identified. This will assist a worker to be safely returned back to work and reduce the likelihood of an aggravation. As a result, a FCE can financially benefit an organisation through reductions in insurance premiums by reducing the length of active claims.
