Functional job analysis
We evaluate essential and marginal job functions under one job title in compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act regulations. We assess the description of a job’s tasks. This helps us look for alternative job placement and matching when an existing employee’s functional capabilities do not meet current job demands. Other uses of job analysis include job re-structuring, such as job sharing, pod development, or rotating job tasks.
Job placement assistance
When an existing employee’s functional abilities do not meet their current job’s demands, assistance may be provided for alternative job placement.
We identify high-risk areas for upper extremity and/or back musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
In-depth ergonomic evaluation with recommendations
A detailed analysis of high-risk areas quantifies the level of risk for MSDs for each area. Recommendations are provided that may serve to lessen the risk, including administrative controls, work practice controls, and engineering controls (such as modify tools and job stations). Recommendations can be low cost and high impact.
