Job Demands Assessments

Job Demands Assessments document the bona fide essential duties required of an occupation. JDAs can be used to understand the physical and cognitive requirements of a job, for return to work planning, determining job suitability for an injury or disability, determining the likelihood of an injury, hiring practices, worker education and for identifying ergonomic hazards.

JDAs are often required by compensation boards and insurance companies when a workplace injury or disability occurs.
