On-Site Job Analysis
An on-site job analysis is a comprehensive and objective evaluation by a either a healthcare professional or an occupational therapist of a work site, a specific job, and a job’s components. This analysis is usually performed to determine the essential duties of the job and if it is safe for an individual to return to the specific job. During the on-site job analysis, individual tasks that are essential, frequent in nature or potentially high risk to the completion of the job are identified. Task analyses are then conducted to measure in more detail the specific frequency tasks are performed, their duration and the force that is required to complete the tasks. An on-site job analysis will also describe environmental conditions and concerns that are specific to the occupation or workplace and review the psychological and cognitive requirements for a specific job.
