Workplace Assessments

National provider of workplace assessments to ensure your non-office-based employees return and stay at work safely.

What is a workplace assessment?

A workplace assessment involves an assessor visiting an employee’s or client’s place of work to look at the work environment, work tasks, physical technique, and ability. It enables us to create individual and job-specific guidance on how to support them at work and/or help them return to work safely.

These assessments are suitable for office-based workers as well as those who have a more physically demanding role.

The workplace assessment typically takes 2-3 hours and gives the individual the opportunity to discuss their health and work, explore any barriers to return to work, and make a meaningful set of recommendations to support them.

These recommendations could include reasonable adjustments and modifications (such as amendments to certain duties that aggravate symptoms), phased return to work plans or adjusted hours, equipment recommendations to improve safety and comfort, as well as training needs that would benefit them.

Workplace assessment also gives a chance for those who have been off work a long time to come back into the workplace with our support, as this is often an anxious step forward for them.

The workplace assessment report reviews the underlying health condition or injury, details the physical demands of the roles, outlines work-related concerns, and any recommendations that you may need to consider to help support them to get back to their normal role.

These assessments are extremely useful for individuals who have been off for an extended period of time, are nervous about a return to work, or there is not a return to work plan yet in place.

A workplace assessment can look at:

  • Entry and exit to building(s)
  • Office based activities
  • Bending and lifting tasks
  • Pushing and pulling tasks
  • Ladders and working at height
  • Confined spaces and awkward positions
  • Using available equipment/machinery
  • Additional equipment requirements
  • Reasonable adjustments
  • Return to work plans
  • Training needs
