In order to address requests for a complete risk management solution, Paragon Safety Group has acquired Job Ready Services, the Triangle’s leading provider of fit-for-duty employment testing and work conditioning services.
Josh Mauney, CEO and Founder of Paragon Safety Group, noted, “Our clients have long been asking for a complete solution for their safety and health programs, and by acquiring Job Ready Services, Paragon Safety Group will truly be a one-stop shop for risk management. With Paragon and Job Ready united as one, we’ll be able to serve the entire employment cycle: we can make sure job candidates are fit enough to do the work they’re being hired for. We can give new hires the safety training they need before they begin work, and then when they’re out there being productive on the jobsite, our Field Safety team can provide safety coaching. When employees do get hurt at work, Job Ready Services can bring them back to physical fitness and back to work quickly and safely, limiting the duration of any Workers’ Comp claim. Our goal is to provide great value for our clients, and we’re so excited about this acquisition because it so greatly increases what we can do for our partners in the industry.”
Paragon announced that Job Ready Services has moved into the Paragon building in Raleigh, working from a state-of-the-art gym facility right next to Paragon’s safety training classrooms. “We invite you to contact us and arrange a tour of the Paragon/Job Ready facility! We’re proud of it and would love to show you what changes we’ve made at our office to accommodate the new addition and explain in person what Job Ready Services is all about,” said Mauney.
What does Job Ready Services do? The company slogan explains it – “Test before you invest.” The mission is to ensure job candidates and employees are fit enough to do their jobs safely and productively (using the WorkSTEPS platform of employment testing). Job Ready Services’ work not only keeps employees healthy, but also saves companies a staggering amount of money via lowered workers comp insurance and fewer claims.
- Employment Testing – physical testing of job candidates, to make sure that new hires don’t have a pre-existing injury or other issue that will cause them to get hurt in the future
- Work Conditioning – helping injured workers to get back to fitness, by putting them through a job-specific program to build back their capabilities after an injury occurs
- Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs) – comprehensive testing to determine the true physical abilities of a person. This is especially helpful for active Workers Comp claims.
- Ergonomic Assessments – identifying potential injuries before they occur by analyzing workstations and providing recommendations to improve ergonomic conditions.
