Job dictionaries

Getting a worker back to work quickly after a work injury increases the likelihood of a full recovery and return to work and our job dictionaries are a useful tool for identifying suitable duties that can be performed while they recover from their injury.

Each of the following job dictionaries includes a job/task breakdown and guidance on the physical demands required for each task, injury risks and how each task can be performed safely.

Also known as early medical assessments, job analysis, worksite assessments and work capacity forms, job dictionaries are an essential communication aid for people involved in planning and facilitating a worker’s recovery and return to work.
