CANANDAIGUA, NY- Thompson Health has expanded the availability of one of its most requested workplace health offerings, Job Function Testing. JFT is a screening tool used to measure a job applicant’s ability to physically perform the functions of a prospective job. HealthWorks, an affiliate of Thompson Health and the leading provider of workplace health services in the Finger Lakes, has provided Job Function Testing to employers for several years and has delivered dramatic cost and productivity savings to these clients.

“Job Function Testing helps organizations reduce lost workdays, high injury costs and injury frequency,” noted Robert Carlson, Program Director of HealthWorks. “Studies show the cost to train an employee earning $10 an hour is $6718.40.

The direct costs of the average workers’ compensation case are $4,000. So, identifying one applicant that is not a safe match for a job and avoiding turnover or a workers’ compensation claim can more than recoup the investment in Job Function Testing,” Carlson said. HealthWorks has met the increased client demand for JFT by training and certifying additional HealthWorks professionals in the testing protocols, he added.
