Understanding the Process:

Step 1 – Site Visit

Performing Functional Job -Task Analyses will involve a site visit from the therapist.  The therapist will question the workers, supervisors, observe the workplace, take photos of work postures and measure weights of equipment and products (of objects manually handled) as well as the other demands on the worker (including social and interpersonal demands).  We will need a site sponsor who will primarily lead the process from an on-site perspective and ensure the site visits will be organised in a concise manner and involving the correct persons for the job.

Step 2 - Documentation

Once the site visit has been completed, the therapist will document the information into a pre-determined format. 

Step 3 – Review of the Report Draft

The supervisors and/or select workers check the document and photos are accurate and then provide any comment and feedback on the report draft

Step 4 – Edit the report draft for final changes and close out the Functional / Physical Demands Task Analysis

The document is checked and changed as required and then saved in a protected format.
