Post-Offer Employment Tests (POET)
Do you need a Post-Offer Employment Test or PAT?
POST-OFFER EMPLOYMENT TESTS are a sign that an employer has a safety-first culture. By physically testing applicants, employers can determine if the applicant is capable of performing the essential functions of the job they are being hired for. In addition, POETs will identify issues with and educate the new employee on proper form and body mechanics of essential job functions.
NOTE: Employers who implement POET’s regularly lower OSHA recordables compared to companies that do not have Post-Offer Employment Testing.
