Roger A. Thrush, Ph.D., is recognized as a job analysis expert. He has developed a thorough and efficient methodology that includes going to the job site to observe the work and interview knowledgeable individuals about the work being analyzed. He was one of the first to include photos of the job and accurate weights and measurements obtained with scales and measuring devices of the physical demand aspects of the job in his job analysis reports. Job analyses are utilized by employers, health care professionals, and insurance carriers to identify the demands of a specific position and/or occupation at a place of employment. The job analysis includes the identification of:
Essential Functions (Duties & Tasks)
Education, Skills, Abilities, and Experience Required
Physical Demand Criteria (Strength, Mobility, and Agility)
Mental Demand Criteria (Dealing with Data & People)
Methods of Modifying the Position (Reasonable Accommodations)
Dr. Thrush’s book, ADA Essential Function Identification, A Definitive Application of Title I, is a technical self-study text on the why’s, what’s, and how-to’s of performing and writing job analyses.
