Job analysis bank
Establishing ability to work
A job analysis establishes what physical and environmental demands, skills, temperament, knowledge and experience are required to perform a specific job. The documents are then reviewed by the employee’s medical provider who determines if the ill or injured employee can perform their job with or without accommodations.
Job analyses are used by Claims Officers for workers compensation claims, as well as by Metro Transit and the Disability Services staff. Short form job analyses are used for pre-employment physicals. A third-party medical provider provides the employer with necessary information to assure new hires for particular jobs are able to meet the specific physical requirements and safely perform the job for which they are being hired.
