Physical Demands Analysis

Understanding what the physical demands are of each task, or job position, is an excellent foundation for any workplace wellness program. A physical demands analysis can be used as a pre-employment screening tool or to help facilitate a modified work program. In addition, a physical demands analysis can help you to identify which jobs or tasks require a more detailed risk assessment.

Industrial Ergonomic Assessment

New Vitality’s goal is to help employers create a comfortable and productive work environment for their employees. An ergonomic assessment will identify any risks that could potentially result in a musculoskeletal injury, and recommendations for either administrative or engineering solutions. Administrative solutions could include policies & procedures, job rotation or staff education, while engineering solutions could involve changes to the physical environment, or implementing new tools or equipment.

Safe Work Practices

New Vitality can help you to develop your safe work practices, policies & procedures, to ensure that your staff have clear and concise guidelines to follow. These documents, can be used as part of a new employee orientation, and can be posted or easily accessible, so that employees have the ability to refresh themselves at any time.

Job Coaching

Do you have an employee that has reported an injury, or is returning to work following recovery from a work-related, or non work-related injury?  Your employee will receive one-on-one training and observation, where alternatives and options will be provided to assist with challenging work tasks. A report will be provided to the employee and management outlining all recommendations.
