Physical Demands Analysis Quantify the Job. Make Sustainable Change.

The Physical Demands Analysis (PDA) is a comprehensive process that accurately and objectively identifies the physical requirements (material handling, body positions and movements, and work environment) of the essential functions of the job.

Not only is this process efficient in quantifying the essential functions of the job, but it also simultaneously reduces the physical capability needed for a position by presenting innovative solutions as a part of the analysis.
