Advanced Ergonomics – Over One Million Tests

 In 1986, AEI began a two-year prospective validation study in grocery distribution to measure the impact of physical ability testing on worker performance.  The results showed a direct relationship between the applicants’ test scores and their ability to perform the job.  A key result was that those who failed the test battery had a significantly higher incidence of injuries. Those who passed the test battery had a higher rated job performance in areas such as productivity, days lost, and turnover.

After the study in grocery distribution, AEI performed two additional prospective validation studies in retail and beverage distribution. Each of these studies yielded results and conclusions consistent with the initial grocery study. Given these outcomes, AEI began offering the development and management of a physical abilities testing program to employers with these aims in mind:

  1. Decrease the number and severity of injuries, decrease turnover, and increase productivity.
  2.  Use a battery of physical tests that are inexpensive, safe, reliable, and can be implemented uniformly across the nation.
  3. Have cutoff scores that reflect the physical demands of the jobs.
  4.  Fulfill the legal requirements of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Age Discrimination In Employment Act (ADEA), and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Today, Advanced Ergonomics, Inc., is the most successful company in the United State performing physical abilities testing, having executed over 1 million tests for employers that saved companies millions of dollars.

AEI has amassed over 100,000 hours of energy expenditure data in the last 30 years from onsite analysis in over 1000 employer locations
