Functional Capacity Evaluation

A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is an assessment for workers who have suffered injuries that could affect their employment opportunities. The worker's ability to perform work and their physical tolerances to a variety of real and/or simulated work activities is assessed.

A Job Demands Analysis (JDA) may be requested in conjunction with a Functional Capacity Evaluation to determine the physical demands associated with the worker's job. The JDA is a comprehensive assessment of the job tasks. This includes quantification (weights, frequency, and duration) of all work tasks.
