This research project is being completed using funding from the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC's Tactical Research Fund. Find out more about the Fund.

Commissioned by AFAC, the aim of the project is to deliver valid, defensible, practical and usable physical employment standards for specified SES tasks, to enable SES agencies to determine whether the individual can safely undertake the task, or identify the need for the task to be undertaken with assistance or task modification. The project will arrive at physical selection tests or screening methods, which ultimately improve the health and wellbeing of emergency services (SES) volunteers and reduce the risk of injury during occupational roles.
