Overland Health provide a range of specialist assessment services that can be tailored to the individual needs of an employee or referrer. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach and we work to understand the specific needs of the referral in each instance to provide the appropriately tailored and most cost effective service.

We provide the following services:

Work-focused Rehabilitation Programmes

For an employee with a physical or psychological need, and who is absent from work or is preparing for work, we are able to provide tailored physical and psychological rehabilitation to overcome barriers to return to work.

Pre-employment Screening

Starting with a job demand analysis of the target job, Overland Health have successfully developed highly tailored and bespoke assessment protocols to assess a candidate’s functional capability to perform a target job safely and reliably. Our pre-employment screenings protocols are also able to identify and provide valuable information on any considerations, precautions and adjustments that an employer may need to undertake.

Functional Capacity Evaluations

A Functional Capacity Evaluation is a highly objective assessment of a person’s functional capability and ability to undertake work related tasks on a dependable and reliable basis. These evaluations are for individuals in or out of work and provide essential and objective information on capability to inform decision making for employment, insurance or disability analysis purposes. These evaluations can also inform rehabilitation needs or workplace adjustments.

Worksite Assessments

This on-site assessment is for employees at work or absent and experiencing difficulty with work tasks, or barriers to returning to work, due to health needs or other physical or psychological barriers. The assessment involves an assessment of the individual, their work tasks and job demands to develop a constructive assessment and guidance on need, adjustments, advice and return-to-work planning.

Ergonomic Assessments

Our ergonomic assessments are for employees that require specialist assessment and advice to ensure their work tasks and work environment are optimal for comfort, productivity, prevention or exacerbation of an injury or condition and legal compliance (for example Display Screen Regulations).

Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we will happily work to tailor a solution that will meet your needs.
