Job Analysis and Video Job Analysis

  • A Job Analysis studies each job position to assess task and classifies the essential and non-essential job functions in order to establish the critical demands of the job and identify risk factors of specific tasks.

    Some examples include:

    • Rotating jobs
    • Strengthening or stretching
    • Changing tool design
    • Rearranging a work setup
    • Balancing work tasks throughout the work day
    • Equipment recommendations
    • Body mechanics and proper lifting techniques

    This data may be used to:

    • Develop or enhance job descriptions to include physical job demands
    • Establish an injured worker's ability to return to work
    • Make recommendations for ergonomic changes
    • Develop educational injury prevention programs

    Post-injury, a therapist can be instrumental in helping the employee progress from light to moderate to regular duty. By utilizing a Video Job Analysis, the therapist can show the physical job demands of the injured worker and make suggestions to the company or client's physician with the employee's medical status in mind.

    • Identification of risk potential and problem areas
    • Assistance provided to physicians and case managers in determining an individual's return-to-work ability
    • Long-term solution to ongoing problems
