Work Capacity Evaluation (WCE)
An objective, comprehensive evaluation of an individual who, due to an injury, health condition or disability, is demonstrating
restriction in their functional and occupational capacity for work.
The WCE is conducted by both a functional and a vocational evaluator in order to determine safe,
suitable and sustainable vocational options for the individual as well as to identify goal orientated,
vocational rehabilitation recommendations. The WCE incorporates an individual’s current medical/clinical
status, work skills, previous employment and educational history, work aptitudes, vocational interests
and functional, psychological and social capacity for work.
Who is it for?
Ideal for individuals who are not able to return to their pre-injury/condition job role and need specialist
advice to define and establish alternative job options that match their functional and occupational
How the service is offered?
The WCE entails two face-to-face sessions with the individual, carried out on one day by an experienced functional evaluator
and by a vocational evaluator. One concise report is then developed, combining the findings of both
evaluators to establish suitable alternative job roles and give vocational rehabilitation recommendations
for facilitating a safe and sustainable return to work.
