Easec is an expert in completing task specific analysis of work to accurately identify the physical, functional and cognitive demands of a specific task, sequence of tasks, or position that workers need to perform. Analysis includes the equipment, machinery and tools that workers use for each task, and the way these are handled and manipulated throughout completion of the task. Task analysis can be used to match the capabilities of a worker to the task, assist with injury prevention strategies, and document job dictionaries to help formulate suitable duties and graduated return to work programs. When there is a good match between peoples work and their abilities to perform that work, there are not only benefits for the worker, but also the employer, their insurers, and the wider community, both social and economic.
The design of a workplace, equipment used within it, spaces available and how they affect our interaction with them can make a huge difference to improving not only workplace wellness, but also injury prevention aims. Easec has expert ergonomists and occupational therapists skilled in workplace assessment and redesign.
