The Americans with Disability Act implemented in 1976 created a new challenge for employer recruitment and hiring. Post-offer agility testing is an option for employers to assess a potential employee’s ability to meet the physical demands of the job. This is especially helpful for physically demanding or repetitive jobs.

Physical Demands Assessment

A Physical Demand Assessment (PDA) documents essential function of job description information as well as the physical requirements to perform a job. The PDA requires exact measurement of force, frequency, biomechanics and task duration. GSC uses the Department Of Labor Handbook For Analyzing Jobs as our methodology for analyzing and reporting the PDA data.
