Decision-making in worker fitness and risk evaluation.

Author information

  • 1University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester.


The information needed to determine fitness or risk and to make employment recommendations and decisions is reviewed. Four key questions are discussed: What are the risks and demands of a specific job? Is the worker capable of performing the job? Would the job place the worker at increased risk? What should the clinician do when there is a likelihood of increased risk or decreased capabilities?
