The focus of this assessment is on the working environment to ensure that it is adequately arranged to fit the majority of users and reduce the risk of staff developing musculoskeletal disorders. This assessment allows implementation of reasonable adjustments under the Equality Act 2010 and will provide solutions to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injury amongst the workforce thereby reducing the incidence of work-related injury absence.
This assessment is suitable for:
- Assessing one or more specific tasks within a job role to identify risk factors that may contribute to musculoskeletal injury in the workforce.
- Assisting workstation design/redesign to ensure that it is suitable for the majority of users using statistical analysis to calculate the workstation dimensions.
- Identifying what job role is suitable for an injured employee to perform whilst they are recovering from injury in conjunction with the Work Capability Assessment.
The assessment will help the employer decide:
- The level of risk associated with one or more specific tasks within a job role which may be contributing to increased incidence of musculoskeletal injury.
- What alterations can be made to that particular task or job role to reduce the level of risk including; workstation design, tool design, job rotation etc.
- What the job role entails so that the physical attributes for the job are considered during the recruitment process so an accurate job description can be produced.
- Whether that particular job role is suitable for an injured worker or whether alternative duties need to be considered taking into account recommendations from the Work Capability Assessment.
How it works:
- We offer single or multiple assessments (which are more cost effective) so please contact head office for further details.
