If you have concerns about the suitability of a job or task for an injured worker, a CHG physiotherapist or occupational therapist can attend your workplace and perform a job analysis.
A job analysis objectively assesses the physical, psychological, environmental and cognitive demands of specific work tasks.
We typically undertake a job analysis when the physical demands of a job are unknown or when it is unclear which workplace duties are suitable for a specific worker. A job analysis can also be performed as part of injury prevention in the process of creating a job dictionary. A job dictionary contains the physical demands of every job or task in your workplace.
The CHG physiotherapist or occupational therapist conducting the job analysis will provide a report containing, where needed, recommendations to:
- modify tasks or task procedures
- purchase/install aids or equipment
- develop a graduated return to work plan (GRTWP) for the worker
CHG psychologists can conduct a psychological job analysis to survey the cognitive demands of a job role, and conduct psychometric testing to determine the suitability of an individual for that job task or role.
