Assessing your workplace for potential hazards to your employees and others is an absolute minimal safety requirement under the OHS Act 2004. In Victoria, over 40% of all workplace injuries are caused by over stressing the body. Many of these injuries could have been avoided. Regular risk assessments and manual handling training should be a cornerstone for any risk management plan.

Following our onsite assessment, a detailed report of the findings found as a result of the risk assessment process will be compiled. Our experienced consultant will provide a list of recommendations and control strategies that may be used to assist with decisions on how to control those identified risks.

Our overall aim is to reduce the potential for musculoskeletal injury and achieve a safer workplace setup. To achieve an accurate result, we believe collaboration with key persons is non-negotiable. People who may be involved in the manual handling course may consist of: production managers, site managers, supervisors, team leaders, OH&S reps, employees etc.

What benefits can you achieve from our manual handling risk assessment?

  • Compliance with legislation by providing essential risk assessments to ensure safe work practices
  • A thorough assessment conducted by an external safety professional
  • A detailed report on the outcomes including control strategies to encourage change, safety improvements, and stress risk assessment
  • Reduce the potential for musculoskeletal injury and therefore claims costs including: LTI, RTW fees, premium increases, potential recruitment costs etc.
  • Provide a platform for improved workplace safety and job specific employee training (e.g. Manual handling training)

A task analysis report details the inherent physical requirements that are necessary for an employee to perform his/her job. It assesses the physical and cognitive demands of a specific work function. This process involves breaking down a job into key tasks and provides detailed information into the physical requirements required by the worker to perform these tasks. Health and safety assessments are also considered.

We present information in an easy to read document that can be used in many situations. The most common uses of this document are for pre-employment medical examinations and return to work planning. This is an extremely valuable tool to assist in the management of your valuable employees. The document includes:

  • A summary (job dictionary) of the role including job description, work factors (rotation, shift times and working environment), essential job requirements and typical items/material handled as part of the role
  • A two-page summary of the physical demands required to perform the nominated role
  • A job breakdown detailing the inherent physical requirements of the key tasks within the nominated role;
  • An overall physical demand rating

If you are after something a bit more innovative what better way to show a treating doctor or RTW person the physical requirements of a job or task than providing that information in a video format.  .

The 2004 Occupational Health and Safety Act require businesses to apply a more proactive approach to workplace safety than ever before. Not only do these job dictionaries help to comply with the OH&S Act, but they also provide a ready-to-use document for OHS and HR needs. A Task Analysis in  Melbourne helps collect all the information that you need.


How can our task analysis reports and job dictionaries be used?

  • As a vital tool to identify what duties an injured employee can perform as part of a RTW plan
  • To improve pre-employment medicals by identifying and detailing the physical requirements of a position and its tasks
  • For improved job descriptions that include details of the physical demands of a job, not just a few dot points
  • To provide a foundation for job-specific training
  • To provide a pre-assessed, ready-to-use document for any relevant OH&S or HR need

What benefits can you achieve from our job dictionary?

  • It assists in returning an injured employee back to work safely
  • It assists in identifying line entry jobs for potential employees
  • It can be used in registers and other ongoing safety documentation
  • It demonstrates compliance with the obligations that are set out in the 2004 OH&S Act
  • It results in a significant return on investment with the potential to reduce the number of injuries

Hearing damage can occur from immediate loud noises or sustained exposure to noise sources. Conducting a workplace noise assessment will identify potentially hazardous noise sources, work areas, or job positions.

Job Fit provides a two stage approach when measuring noise exposure. The first stage is the spot measurement which aims to identify noisy areas. The second stage is exposure testing which is the process of collecting noise data over a typical shift. All results of the noise impact assessment will be provided to you in a report including recommendations to control those risks identified.

What benefits can you achieve from our noise assessments?

  • Compliance with AS1269 and OHS Act 2004 obligations by providing essential noise assessments to ensure safe work practices
  • Minimise or even eliminate the risk of noise exposure damage to your employees and others who visit your workplace
  • Saving in claims costs, down time, insurance premium and productivity losses
  • A detailed report on the outcomes including recommendations to control the identified risks to encourage change and safety improvements within your organisation

If your staff members suffer from aches and pains or are having trouble focusing, then it might be time to book in for an ergonomic assessment with Job Fit. Simple changes made in and around a workspace can make huge differences in the way our bodies cope. These changes can help improve productivity and reduce or prevent pains that can be associated with general office duties.

Due to the increasing number of workers sitting in front of a computer for longer periods of time, ergonomics is quickly becoming a key step in the prevention of repetitive strain injuries. If your staff are working remotely from home check out our Remote Ergonomic and Safety Inspections. Workplace assessments help big time. 


The method we use to assess a workers workstation involves:

  • Each ergonomic assessments takes 15-20 minutes
  • The ergonomic assessments are performed for a staff member while they are present
  • Appropriate changes to the setup will be made during the consultation. The staff members’ work demands will be taken into consideration
  • A detailed report will be developed and sent to the HR department or appropriate person

All office ergonomic assessments are performed by a trained and experienced safety consultant who will complete an ergonomic checklist. The report will include all outcomes of the consultation such as: the workstation layout, any adjustments that were made during the consultation, suitability of additional office equipment, individuals symptoms (if any), and typical work demands of the individual.

We will educate your staff to self-assess their posture, how to structure the day to minimise the rate of fatigue and provide other injury prevention tips. We also run training programs specific for the office worker. Click here to find out about our Office Ergonomics training programs.


What benefits can you achieve from our Ergonomic Assessment?

  • Educating your staff on the significance of a correctly setup workstation
  • Huge return on investment by reducing the likelihood for injury to staff who spend a substantial part of their day working in front of a computer
  • Improved work efficiency where productivity has been reduced due to musculoskeletal complaints, headaches and fatigue
