Over the past three decades, we have developed an industry-leading method for developing Job Dictionaries that helps employers to reduce and manage workplace injuries. To achieve its potential, an occupational dictionary must be built on a job and task analysis that is focused on data collection with an understanding of and commitment to ergonomic principles, risk management, the biopsychosocial model and disability prevention (see key concepts for job dictionaries and WHS below). We offer a unique, proprietary, industry leading and evidence-based assessment process and reporting system that guarantees this focus and achieves the required outcome. Our approach includes the understanding, relevance and application of anthropometric data and ergonomic guides (e.g. safe weights, forces and reach distances) in the job and task assessment and reporting process. Our Job Dictionary now offers for the first time, a fully digital Job Dictionary database with electronic reports, stored and accessed electronically from a computer system, in addition to the standard electronic reports with digital photographs in a PDF format or hard copy printed reports.
Our assessment method and reporting system was developed by Specialist Occupational Health Physiotherapist, Richard Fuller [FACP]. Richard is the developer and presenter of the Australian Physiotherapy Association’s Level 2 training program in ‘Job and Task Analysis’ that has been run across Australia for the past 5 years. The key outcome for this training program is competency in the ability to deliver an organisational job dictionary.
Aim Physiotherapy and Work Health Solutions have extensive experience in managing and conducting job and task analysis projects including mining, construction, manufacturing, healthcare, transport and logistics, maintenance and security. From large multi-site projects to a single job analysis for an injured worker, our standardised processes and work health expertise result in efficient and accurate data collection and timely reports in a consistent format that can be instantly understood and interpreted by Doctors, workers and workplace managers.
Our job dictionary service is delivered by appropriately trained and qualified professionals, experienced in ergonomics and task analysis (refer to bio of leading resource). The accurate and relevant job and task information contained within the job dictionary helps to embed health and safety management into all operational aspects of an organisation.
