The staff at Independent Rehabilitation Services can conduct a Job Analysis to assist in identifying essential functions of any position. This on-site evaluation will assess the material and non-material handling demands of work and tools/equipment utilized to carry out job duties. A comprehensive report will be prepared outlining physical demands and tolerances for use in litigation, physician review or job placement.
An Ergonomic Assessment can be a useful tool to identify ways the work environment can be adjusted to minimize the risk to injury and to maximize productivity. Workers that can perform their duties safely and comfortably are often more productive and efficient. An evaluation by a Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist will review posture, equipment and workplace design, physical demands, environment factors and technology (computer, keyboard, mouse, etc.) use and result in a report with suggestions for changes to the work environment.
