Work Risk Analysis seeks to identify a comprehensive list of potential physical risk factors for lower back injury and cumulative trauma disorders (CTD) presented by the work area, work procedures, and employee behaviors. The report describes the injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system that may be encouraged by these risks. The report then offers a comprehensive set of corrective recommendations that target the reduction of these risks.
This analysis is compiled by a team of orthopedic physical therapists specializing in the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal injury and disease in the workplace. These physical therapists offer advanced training and experience in human biomechanics, musculoskeletal disease, and workplace ergonomics.
The evaluation of the work area seeks to identify risk factors presented by the work environment, work procedures, and tools. This evaluation also pays particular attention to worker behaviors in carrying out the job tasks. The manner in which the workers use their bodies to do the jobs is a primary determining factor in workplace injury risks.
The report will identify the specific body motions and postures and external risk factors that lead to specific musculoskeletal stresses. Specific actions are related to specific diseases and injuries.
The corrective recommendations will suggest improvements in workplace design and procedure, improvements in how the workers use their bodies to do the jobs, and procedures that facilitate greater repair and recovery of the working human body. These recommendations are offered by the consultants acting as outside parties. That is, they offer suggestions without the regard for physical considerations that may only be made by people inside the organization.
