PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE TEST FOR EMT WORKERS
The treatment and transport of patients in the hospital and out of hospital environment poses serious physical demands on workers in the ambulance industry. Unassisted two person crews regularly are required to lift and carry incapacitated adults weighing more than 200 pounds, using an 80 pound gurney. Routine obstacles such as curbs, stairs and narrow hallways can prevent the gurney from being rolled, thus requiring the ambulance crew to lift the entire weight of the patient and equipment. Furthermore, normal body weight distribution means that the worker at the patient's head often carries 55-60% of the combined patient/equipment weight.
To reduce the risk of injuries to its employees and patients, CARE Ambulance Service has designed a post-offer physical performance test. This test is directly derived from EMT job functions that EMTs must perform when lifting and moving a 200 pound patient. This test, using specialized equipment is administered under the direct supervision of a Licensed Physical Therapist and is an accurate simulation of the flexibility, strength and endurance required to work on an ambulance.
