Job Task Analysis and Job Dictionaries

Job Task Analysis and Job Dictionaries

Our experience has shown us that an effective Job Dictionary is one which not only profiles the specific tasks associated with a role and identifies the potential risk(s), but serves as a valuable WHS, HR, and Return to Work tool for the organisation through:

  • Input into pre-employment selection and screening based on true business requirements, decreasing the chance of importing pre-existing injuries and mitigating preventable workplace incidents.
  • Increasing the value of inductions through teaching best practice and explaining task specific risk behaviours from Day 1.
  • Providing the WHS / SHEQ functions with operational risk profiling that integrate into annual improvement plans.
  • Providing the operational workforce with direction on risks to include in SWMS, JHS/JSA, toolbox talks, and operational procedures.
  • Assisting the Return to Work function and allied medical practitioners with appropriate information to make informed decisions about an individual’s capacity to work. This significantly reduces the time taken to resume operational engagement, and to achieve full fitness.

Our method of field data collation through our MSD Review accelerates the Job Dictionary component providing increased value and return on investment. We take a risk based approach to the Job Dictionary workflow meaning that the higher impact tasks from an MSD prevention perspective are tackled first.
