New job dictionary resources Back

‚ÄčWe are pleased to announce the LGIS injury prevention team have completed 32 job dictionaries - available now to all members on our website (please note you must be logged in to view and access).

Job dictionaries are a valuable tool for any organisation, providing stakeholders with an understanding of the specific job tasks and inherent requirements of a job role.

You've likely seen many articles in which we wax lyrical about the benefits of job dictionaries. This is because they can be used throughout an employee's lifecycle, including:

  • During the pre-employment process when looking to determine the appropriateness of a candidate against the inherent requirements of the role.
  • Tailoring of injury prevention programs to the physical and psychological requirements and demands of the role, and
  • Identifying suitable duties in establishing a return to work program for injured workers.

You can use these job dictionaries as a baseline document, or to complement existing job dictionary reports.

Each job dictionary contains the following:

  • A summary cover sheet
  • Musculoskeletal risk matrix
  • Psychological demands matrix
  • Manual task images

There is also a user manual linked on the website, which explains the project, job roles, and how to understand the risk matrixes for both physical and psychological risks.
