A physical ability test (PAT) consists of a series of tasks done in a clinical environment. A PAT tries to replicate the physical demands of a job description as closely as possible. The PAT evaluates the employee's capacity to perform work-related physical tasks as needed.
A Pre-hire Physical Ability Test (PAT) program works to ensure that workers you hire are well-matched in terms of physical capabilities to the everyday demands of the jobs into which they will be placed. The testing adds a new element of accuracy to the hiring process, reducing bad hires and employee turnover.
