A successful Injury Prevention program starts with defining the job tasks of each postion and determining the essential job functions. Most companies have Job Descriptions but fail to include the actual Job Tasks.
- Job Descriptions give a general understanding of the job and its duties.
- Job Task Analysis give a precise and scientifically calculated understanding of the actual tasks involved in a job, such as lifting, reaching, pulling, carrying, rotation, bending, crawling, etc.
Occupational Kinetics utilizes our Job Task Analysis to create Physical Demand Assessments that are useable tools to send with your injured worker to the doctor. Now your physician knows exactly what the tasks of the job are and the physician doesn’t have to take the perceived tasks from the employee. This will greatly reduce restricted duty days and lost time days. Thus returning your workers back to the job safer and faster. This will result in a major cash savings for your organization.
Once you have created Validated Job Task Analysis you can then utilize that to create Light Duty Programs and Post-Offer Physical Abilities Testing. Job Task Analysis can also be a useful tool when you have an Independent Medical Evaluation, Fit For Duty Test or Functional Capacity Evaluation performed.
