Ergonomic evaluation specialists are ideally situated to add immediate value to the services they offer by combining ergonomic evaluation skills with new knowledge of the requirements of Title I (Employment) of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). On an ongoing basis, employers seek valid answers to questions about the physical demands and inherent risks of job tasks in order to remain in compliance with Title I. Your knowledge of accepted work measurement techniques in combination with new knowledge of such subjects as reasonable accommodation, direct threat, and essential function task statements supports employer compliance.
The objective of this course is to expand your professional toolbox as you prepare to contribute to the resolution of ADA Title I experienced by the employers in your current and growing practice. The conversation may include questions about an OSHA 300 Log entry as a trigger for reasonable accommodation coverage of a worker. It may concern a company’s need to document the cost behind a denial of a request for accommodation. New requests for your services will involve your application of accepted risk evaluation tools to survey work tasks that are essential to a job for which the employer intends to institute post-offer testing.
In reality your contribution to the present-day mechanics of on-the-job safety, hiring, employment testing, and reasonable accommodation is only limited by (1) an employer’s interest in compliance with these topics, and (2) your level of preparation to participate in the discussion. You are currently an ergonomic evaluation resource: an increase in your value to the employer intent on complying with federal employment practices begins with this course.
