How many times do people ask you, “what do you do?”. When a job involves physical effort, answering that question the wrong way can place your employees at risk. How? When clear standards aren’t specified your employee may be lifting, pushing, pulling, carrying, or reaching beyond their limit, compromising personal and team safety. Vague job descriptions challenge the injured worker’s healthcare team as well – how will they know exactly what is required for safe job performance?
Functional job descriptions spell out the toughest physical demands of the job in a way that can easily be assessed before hiring, and when workers seek to return to work after an injury.
