Functional Job Descriptions

Many employers have job descriptions that outline the educational and experience required to be considered for a given job.  These same job descriptions typically outline the responsibilities and specific work tasks that make up the given job.  Where many job descriptions fall short, is in the documentation of the functional abilities or requirements of the work.  Some employers do have limited data that relates to the physical demands of the job, but this data often lacks in sufficient detail to be of value in the prevention of musculoskeletal claims.  HCE staff can perform the necessary physical demand analysis for each job and incorporate this data into existing job descriptions or assist in the creation of new job descriptions for each position.  If you elect to become a member in our Small Group Program, you will learn how to develop your own functional job descriptions that will contain the correct level of detail.
