The following is a summary of the types of assessments that we offer to help employers and their valued employees. We use the terms “job site” and “worksite” which are the physical environment i.e. the employee’s personal office/workstation, including accessibility to the washroom, cafeteria, meeting rooms, elevators, parking etc.
- Job Site Assessment
- Physical Demands Assessment (PDA)
- Cognitive Demands Assessment
- Occupational Therapy Cognitive Assessment
- Ergonomic Assessment
- Visual Assessment and Accommodation Report
A job site evaluation takes place at the employee’s pre-injury worksite and is coordinated in conjunction with their employer. The therapist identifies the physical and cognitive requirements of the job in order to evaluate the suitability of a job and/or environment to the employee and if requested, will offer recommendations to allow the employee to perform the job tasks within their physical and/or cognitive restrictions.
A physical demands assessment provides an objective analysis of the physical and environmental components of all essential and non-essential tasks of a job such as lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling etc.
A cognitive demands assessment provides an objective analysis of the cognitive demands of all essential and non-essential tasks of a job such as memory, concentration, time pressure etc.
This involves a comprehensive assessment of an employee’s cognitive function (e.g. memory, attention, processing speed, insight/judgment, executive function, etc.). It is used to identify the cognitive issues that will impact the employee’s ability to perform their job and to plan interventions to remediate or compensate for identified deficits associated with job performance.’
This assessment is conducted at the employee’s worksite to determine the need for any worksite changes/accommodations/equipment to help the employee return to their normal work duties. Education is provided to the employee on ideal postures and how to adjust their existing equipment or tasks to reduce poor working habits.
This assessment includes a visual screening assessment and an assessment of the employee’s worksite to determine the need for work site changes, accommodations and equipment to help the employee return to their regular work duties.
