Employee Profile showing the pod WorkFit status
Our latest upgrade introduces WorkFit!
WorkFit provides a simple but important Fit for Duty status for your employees that will provide easy to use views and data to quickly understand if you’re employees are able to perform their required job duties AND are compliant with their Fit for Duty program by providing expiration dates.
WorkFit Service Details showing Fit for Duty compliance and profile.
WorkFit was designed to give employers a quick current snapshot of their employee’s Fit for Duty status without the need to dive through past screenings and other history.
There are three WorkFit statuses that drive the entire Fit for Duty process:Fit, Unfit and Expired.
The employee or candidate is medically able to perform their required job duties.
The employee or candidate is medically unable to perform their required job duties. In most cases, this status is temporary and requires the person to follow-up with their own personal physician to obtain a clearance or note.
The employee is outside the WorkFit compliance period and requires a new exam. This expired status can change once a new request is created, and the employee completes the screening that satisfies the compliance requirements.
There is a fourth WorkFit status that is labeled 'pending'.
This status does not drive the Fit for Duty process.
A Pending status means the employee or candidate is currently going through the screening process, therefore a WorkFit status has not yet been assigned.
Who is WorkFit for?
WorkFit is for employers whose employee population participates in Fit for Duty programs such as OSHA Medical Surveillance, Maritime Medical Surveillance including USCG exams, DOT exams or any program that requires specific periodic medical compliance.
A WorkFit profile is a is a specific set of procedures that are used to determine Fit for Duty statuses for your employees or candidates.This WorkFit profile will be selected by your company or your administrator.
As soon as the WorkFit profile is created and put in place, employees and candidates will then begin receiving WorkFit statuses.
