Reduce your work-related injury costs by 50%-80% with Post-Offer Employment Testing (POET), Physical Agility Testing (PAT), and Fit for Duty Testing (FFD).


An important aspect of any job description is the physical demands required to perform the essential job functions. Determine the true physical demands associated with each job title.


We offer employers the top-of-the-shelf tools to return injured employees to full or modified duty work. Work conditioning allows injured workers to gain strength and confidence after an injury.  The XRTS FCE provides physicians with all of the information they need to assess current work ability after an injury.

WorkSTEPS Testing

It’s a legally compliant, scientific and objective means of matching a workers’ functional capabilities with the essential functions of the job.

You can’t hire by looks. Your next workers’ comp claim may look perfectly healthy and fit, but what you don’t know can hurt you and your employees!

Legally protect your workforce – your greatest asset – by making sure your employees are physically capable of doing the job. At Paragon Safety Group, we know that employees who are physically capable of performing their job are more productive and have a reduced risk of injury.

What Our Clients Have to Say About Us

“As a Nurse Case Manager, I find the work conditioning program at Job Ready Services to be the GOLD STANDARD. Excellent communication from the staff regarding progression or lack of progression of the injured worker is provided on a regular basis and this has led to great success with return to work or identification of injuries that will not allow them to return to their previous work assignment.

“After eleven years of interpreting for workers’ comp, I have seen many facilities that treat injured people. I know the Doctors, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Work Conditioning Places that are part of the network for workers’ comp. With that knowledge I know where I would go if I were in need. The only place I would go for work conditioning is Job Ready Services, because I have not seen any place that offers the superior service that Job Ready Services offers. Vincent, the therapist in charge, is constantly observing the patients and watching that they use the correct posture, using the correct mechanics, and lifting the correct…”

“We partnered with Job Ready Services in 2015 to establish the job analysis for all of our major jobs groups and implement Work Steps pre-employment testing at all of our locations.  This program has allowed us to improve a candidate’s chances of success by determining whether or not they can safely perform the essential functions of the position.  Over the past few years, we have realized a reduction in injuries and a significant decrease in our MOD rate.  We believe Job Ready Services has been a key component of our success as we strive to provide a safe and healthy working environment for the Coastal Crew.”
