Physical Demands Analysis (PDA) / Job Demands Analysis (JDA)
Help injured workers stay or return to work safely
The Physical Demands Analysis (PDA) / Job Demands Analysis (JDA) provides accurate measures of the physical and cognitive demands of a job.
PDA/JDA makes it quick, easy and reliable to:
- Determine job suitability for workers returning to work after an injury
- Identify modified and alternative duties for a worker with physical limitations
- Use job-matching to get a worker safely back to work sooner
- Give the Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB) valuable information to aid in return to work planning and claim adjudication
- Help identify ergonomic risks as part of an ergonomic assessment
How it works
- During a half to full day on-site session, the ergonomist interviews workers, supervisors and managers then photographs and measures essential job tasks such as lifting, carrying, pushing, walking, postures, etc.
- A report providing objective and detailed description of the job demands is provided. It includes a description of tasks, photographs, and quantitative measurements of job demands.

Ergonomic job coaching
Immediate and ongoing support for injured workers
One-on-one coaching when an employee returns to the workplace can address on-the-job performance barriers and give the individual confidence to do their job safely without fear of re-injury.
Our ergonomics coach works closely with the employee, management, and health care practitioners involved to address any challenges the employee may face.
How it works – The ergonomics professional’s role:
- Support and guide the worker and their employer in overcoming barriers and adapting to changes while progressing to a successful return to work
- Review the work environment, physical and cognitive job demands to help ensure the employee’s abilities are aligned with a realistic return to workplan
- Provide on-going coaching in safe body mechanics, work methods, pacing, work-rest schedules for safe graduated return to work
- Meet with the worker and employer as regularly as needed to ensure on-going progress in the graduated return to work
