Assessment of the patient’s pre-accident work demands.
A Work Site Assessment utilizes scientific principles and measurements to analyze the components of a specific job relevant to a particular employee. The assessment is frequently performed as part of a treatment plan for an injured worker. The assessment gathers data on the physical requirements of a job for comparison with a worker’s functional abilities. The results are then used to aid in return to work and work conditioning plans / programs. Furthermore, the data is used to identify tasks, environments and equipment that present barriers to return to work and risk factors within the workplace.
