Worksite Assessment

Worksite assessment involves consultation with the injured worker, their manager and their doctors. We take a detailed history and physical examination, then head to the worksite for observation of the worker in their tasks.

We use our trained ‘physio eyes’ to observe postures, movements, forces, repetition, speed and various environmental factors to understand the demands of the work and the worker’s capabilities.

Worksite assessment may be performed on a manufacturing line, at a building site, on a drilling rig or in a helicopter. These are just some of the places we have had the privilege of working.

After talking with the worker, their manager and treating doctors, we negotiate a plan that is practical for the business and most importantly safe for the worker. We design a suitable duties program that is essentially a gym program at work.
