Worksite Assessments

Worksite assessments, also known as workplace evaluations, are onsite assessments of an employee's pre-injury duties or suitable duties.

Worksite assessments can be carried out for a number of reasons. They can be necessary when preparing for workplace investigations, for meeting employer duties and obligations for work health and safety, and for the provision of independent opinions for personal injury claims.

Worksite assessments can also be carried out as a part of preventative or early intervention assessments and reports, and can be used to assist with the development of return-to-work plans.

Worksite assessments are used to identify the tasks and equipment used in the course of the employee’s role. A qualified professional will visit the site to observe, evaluate, and report on the physical and ergonomic elements of the role.

The information gathered by the medico-legal professional can be used for the following purposes:

  • Risk factors for health - The risk factors that are affecting, aggravating, or causing the employee’s health, or those that have contributed to injury or poor health.
  • Prevention and causes - What’s happening at the workplace and what can be done to improve and prevent work health and safety.
  • Strategies and intervention - Specific strategies for addressing health and safety issues, such as ergonomic advice and manual handling training.
