Critical Strength & Mobility testing is the final step in SureHire’s Fitness-to-Work program. Candidate’s participate in a series of lifting stations, as well as positional and mobility tests, which match the physical demands of the job. These stations analyze the candidate’s strength and conditioning.
Candidates are required to perform 30-40 minutes of job specific lifting to confirm that the candidate possesses the necessary strength and conditioning to safely work at the job they are applying for. Each candidate’s performance is objectively evaluated through the measurement of heart rate following the completion of each station, oxygen saturation levels, and standardized time limits and rest periods.
All lifting is closely monitored by certified SureHire staff to ensure that proper lifting technique is demonstrated. Testing is immediately ceased if the candidate is at risk of injury.
Critical Strength & Mobility Testing: What to Expect
The duration of the Critical Strength & Mobility testing approximately 30-40 minutes
During that time, you will be required to:
1. Complete a 3 minute standardized stepping test
2. Demonstrate proper lifting mechanics
3. Participate in a variety of lifting stations
4. Perform positional tests such as kneeling, crouching, and sustained trunk flexion
The level of Critical Strength & Mobility testing is determined based on the physical demands of the job position, and is selected by your employer prior to scheduling your test
All candidates are required to wear a heart rate monitor as heart rate is closely monitored following the completion of EACH station
Individuals who do not successfully complete the Critical Strength and Mobility component will be issued a referral which will indicate what is required or recommended for you to return to SureHire to complete your Fitness-to-Work testing.
