Challenge & Solution

Inefficient Physical Demands Analysis Adds to Injury Costs

Accurate job descriptions are needed for legally defensible job screening, fit-for-duty, and return-to-work. Unfortunately, physical demands analyses have historically been tackled using inefficient manual and time-consuming processes. Many companies can’t even get that far, lacking the resources to document the tasks required to be performed in their jobs. Without this documentation, it is difficult to plan comprehensive employee health and safety programs. In other cases, programs like PDAs are performed and documented independently, even though they collect much of the same information. This results in wasted time and inconsistent data. The end result for all of the above is that injury claim costs are higher due to the length of time it takes to return an injured employee back to the workforce. Visibility into employees’ return to work progress is often lacking for key stakeholders (employer, HR, healthcare provider, manager, etc.).

Reduce Costs, Increase Accuracy & Make More Informed Decisions 

For EHS professionals who want to reduce injury costs and increase productivity by cutting the time it takes to return an injured employee to workforce, the VelocityEHS Physical Demands Analysis & Return to Work capabilities offer best-in-class ActiveEHS® driven Software technology that drives operational excellence with automated job match analysis to match employees with job requirements; seamlessly integrates between RtW profiles and the Digital Job Profile database to ensure accurate and consistent processes and documentation; and increases efficiency with standardized PDA templates prefilled with industry standard data.

  • Digital Job Profiles: The detailed job profile feature helps employers digitize and automate the PDA process by providing standardized PDA templates that are prefilled with industry standard data. This saves time, improves accuracy, reduces training time, and allows EHS professionals to focus on implementing changes that maximize results for their business.
  • Return to Work Profiles: The Return to Work profiles feature includes integration between Return to Work profiles and Digital Job Profile database. This ensures accurate and consistent processes and documentation, while reducing injury claim costs and lost productivity due to the time taken to return an injured employee to the workforce.
  • Automated Job Match Analysis: The Automated Job Match Analysis leverages integration with the Digital Job Profile database to automate job matching for both full and modified duty jobs, saving time spent in manual processes and improving accuracy of data.
