Physical Demands Analyses are the cornerstone of a comprehensive musculoskeletal injury prevention program. PDAs outline the physical demands of a job and are used during our return-to-work program to evaluate the difference between the injured employees’ capabilities and that of the job as outline in the PDA.

MedWorks develops PDAs for our clients to server a number of uses. It helps identify the true tasks functional requirements required to perform the tasks, and safety risks associated with a new position. Secondly, where indicated, the PDA sets the stage for developing pre-employment functional assessments to assist in solidifying the recruitment process. The assessments can then be completed in a clinical setting to determine whether the candidate can perform the basic job demands. Lastly, the PDA is a comprehensive document that can be used to assist in guiding rehabilitation and return to work programs for injured employees.
