Job Dictionary/Job Demand Assessments
Job dictionaries are a useful tool for identifying suitable duties that can be performed while an employee is returning to work from an injury. Each job dictionary includes a full job/task breakdown, guidance on the physical demands required for each task, injury risks & how each task can be performed safely.
Job dictionaries are an essential communication aid for people involved in planning & facilitating a workers recovery and return to work.
Risk Assessments and Workplace Inspections
A workplace safety inspection is a regularly scheduled inspection of the workplace using a checklist to assist with the identification and monitoring of hazards. It is the best way of identifying hazards before they can cause an injury and implementing action to eliminate or control the hazards.
Resolve can conduct these inspections using a checklist which is modified to suit your company's needs. Inspections should be carried out at least annually, with the exception of high risk areas which should be inspected at least every six months. Extremely low risk areas such as single occupancy offices should be inspected at least every three years or when occupancy changes.
Individual risk assessments for certain types of task/jobs can also be completed to suit.
