Workplace Assessment Townsville
Navigating a return to work can be difficult at times, especially if an employee is returning to work on reduced capacity following extended time away from the workplace. Balancing a mix of requirements from all stakeholders including the business, insurer, medical practitioners as well as the workers capacity can make putting together a graduated return to work program a difficult task.
Strive’s workplace assessment will identify the critical demands of all work tasks and establish the work-related performance criteria against which the worker’s functional capacity is to be evaluated. During a Strive workplace assessment, we can identify methods of temporarily or permanently modifying the work demands or work environment to facilitate a safe and sustainable return to work. This may include identification and development of a Graded Suitable Duties Program to assist the worker by restoring their functional tolerances in a graduated fashion.
