safe and healthy workplaces.

Randstad's Occupational Health service offering includes worksite assessments, job dictionaries, job analysis, workstation ergonomic assessments and manual handling training.

worksite assessments/ job dictionaries/ job analysis.

  • These assessments are utilised to identify the critical physical, mental and cognitive demands of a role and structure this information within a report format for easy reference. These reports are useful in the management of injured workers return to work processes and also in matching the testing requirements of an FCE to the specific to demands of a role in order to determine fitness for work. 
  • Randstad assessments offer a point of difference in their structure, classifying (sedentary, light, medium, heavy, very heavy) not only the job role as a whole but also the specific tasks required of the role. 
  • The benefit of this lies within the return to work process and early injury intervention, allowing certifying doctors the ability to identify suitable duties for an injured worker and minimising lost time from work e.g. a role may be identified as medium/ heavy and unsuitable for a return to work however individual tasks involved in that role may be sedentary/ light. 
  • Upon receipt of referral a Randstad Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist will arrange a date/ time to attend site to complete the site assessment aspect of the service. The allocated assessor will attend site and review the physical demands of the roles being assessed, taking measurements, video and photos. 
  • The information gathered through the site visit will be utilised to develop a report outlining the critical physical cognitive and mental demands of the role and identifying the classification of each role and each task in regards to its physical demands.

workstation ergonomic assessment.
