The Physical Demands Analysis (PDA) project is a COAA initiative intended to promote industry adoption of fitness testing as part of a well designed safety program. PDA’s help to fairly and accurately determine the physical requirement needed to a worker to safely perform specific tasks. These assessments help employers assign the right resource to the right job and reduce the time needed to safely return an injured worker back to work. This project has created a repository of draft PDAs for industry use. These templates can be used as starting points to create job and site specific PDAs. A leading practices guide has also been develop as part of this project to assist employers in the development of fair and defensible fitness testing programs.
