Job Demand Analysis (JDA) Reports

One of the services BCMEA provided in the past are Physical Demands Analysis reports. PDA reports are used by the claims management department as well as member companies as a resource for assessing return to work or accommodation requests. The reports will also be utilized by the Training department to assist in the curriculum development process and ensure appropriate updates to existing programs.

PDA - Actual full physical demand report (PDA) for the specified job.

MD Summary - Pull out section from the PDA report and has been saved separately for ease of use. This is a medical summary specific to the job. Its purpose is to be given to the Medical practitioner to fill out and send back. This will help alleviate the issue of a lack of understanding by the practitioner as to what the job physically entails and to provide you with more specific details as to the direct job related tasks that the worker is unable to perform.
