A back fit test may be included in the pre-placement medical if the job involves lifting, twisting, reaching or repetitive actions involving the back, or if the job involves sitting or standing for long periods of time.

The back fit test uses a variety of simple exercises to tests for flexibility and strength of the back and abdominal muscles.

The results are then recorded against a standardized set of possible results for each test, and an overall back fitness score is assigned.
