Worksite Assessments

A Workplace Assessment provides a breakdown of a worker’s tasks and responsibilities. Incite Solutions Group Occupational Therapists are skilled in task analysis and have a minimum of 5 years' industry experience in workplace rehabilitation. We are dedicated to providing accurate and efficient assessments to determine appropriate outcome-focused suitable duties plans.

Functional Capacity Evaluations

A  Functional Capacity Assessment aims to provide a clear indication of a worker’s current functional capabilities. Incite Solutions Group provides both standardised assessment procedures (PWPE) as well as FCEs. The PWPE procedure provides a complete overview of current function, whereas the FCE targets key areas relevant to the worker’s needs in the workplace or specific to their injury. All FCEs are provided by trained Occupational Therapists with a minimum of 5 years field experience.

Home Assessments

A Home Assessment is undertaken to assess a person’s ability to conduct activities of daily living. Our Occupational Therapist assesses a person’s need for assistive equipment or home modifications. A home visit is performed in order to assist in making recommendations regarding services, equipment and modifications. Education may be provided to patients on how to prevent falling, to conserve energy, and where to access assistive equipment for independent living. 

Ergonomic Assessments

Ergonomic Assessments are a sound tool for employers to assess an individual’s workstation or office space to ensure it is set up in a manner to reduce risk to the employee's health whilst increasing their productivity. Ergonomic Assessments are often now another step in the induction process of new team members, and the first line of defence for repetitive strain injuries in office-based staff. Due to the increasing number of Australian workers not only sitting behind a desk, but also performing work duties of a repetitive nature, repetitive strain injuries are a growing area of concern and awareness.

Our team of allied health professionals utilise their comprehensive knowledge of anatomy, postural assessments and biomechanical principles to perform effective and functional ergonomic assessments. The performance of these assessments can be on a per person basis following reports of injury or symptoms all the way to full workforce screening assessments to ensure all staff are working in an ergonomically sound environment

Job Analysis and Suitable Duties Identification

Job Analysis is the systematic study of jobs to identify the observable work activities, tasks, and responsibilities associated with a particular job or group of jobs. A Job Analysis Assessment provides information to organisations which helps to determine which employees are best fit for specific jobs. Through job analysis, the analyst needs to understand what the important tasks of the job are, how they are carried out, and the necessary human qualities needed to complete the job successfully. The process of job analysis involves the analyst describing the duties of the employee, then the nature and conditions of work, and finally some basic qualifications.
