EPAAS

“Eastman Protective Agency Assessment and Selection”

EPAAS was created as an assessment tool to determine potential employees physical readiness, endurance, maximum stress level, integrity, and pre-employment strength and weaknesses.

A correct repetition is:  On the command, “Go”, the body is lowered from the front leaning rest position until the chest touches a flat hand on the floor, then the body is raised until the arms are fully extended (locked).

Grader position:  The grader will have one hand on the floor and the other on one elbow of the individual doing the exercise.  The grader will notify the individual doing the exercise if he needs to go lower or extend the arms fully, and will not count the repetition after the second notification

Sit-ups:

Time:  1 minute

Minimum:  40 sit-ups is the minimum

The correct position is:  The individual lies flat on his back on a generally flat surface.  The legs should have a 90-degree bend at the knees.  Feet should be flat on the floor with no more than 12 inches in between them, and at the same level as the upper body.  Fingers should be interlaced (one or more and at any part of the finger) and placed on top of the head.

A correct repetition is:  On the command “Go” the individual raises his upper body by bending at the pelvis until the spine (base of the neck) breaks or equals the vertical plane (lower spine).  Then he lowers his body until the shoulder blades touch the floor.  The person holding the feet may secure them by any means, but will not be in the way or assist in the repetition.

Grader position:  The grader will be positioned perpendicular to the individual doing the exercise.  The grader will notify the individual doing the exercise if he needs to go higher or interlace the fingers and will not count the repetition after the second notification.

The correct position is:  The bar will be grasped with hands shoulder width apart, knuckles facing away from the individual.  The individual will hang from the bar so that the arms are fully extended (starting position).

A correct position is:  On the command “Go”, pull with the arms, raising the body until the chin is higher than the bar (head can be level or tilted back).  Then the individual will lower his body until he is hanging with arms fully extended.  The knees may be bent so the feet are behind the body, but the knees cannot come up in the front or kip in any way that would assist in the repetition.

Grader position:  The grader will stand 18 inches in front of the person doing the exercise and will count out loud.  If the individual touches the grader with any part of this body, that repetition will not count.  The grader will notify the individual doing the exercise if he needs to go higher or lock the arms, and will not count the repetition after the first notification.

Grader position: The grader will be positioned to one side of the individual to ensure the upper arms are at least parallel with the dip bar in the lower position, and the arms become fully locked in the up position.  The grader will notify the individual if he fails the go low enough, or if the elbows don’t lock.  He will not count the repetition after the second notification.

Kipp-up:

Time:  One minute time limit

Grader position:  The grader will be located to one side or the other of the individual to ensure the arms and legs are fully extended to start each repetition.  The grader will also ensure that the heels touch above the bar on each repetition.  The grader will notify the individual if the individual fails to fully extend the arms or legs or fails to touch the heels above the bar.  He will not count the repetition after the second notification.
