The physical demands of a job describe the manner in which the job is currently being performed. This includes the physical tasks required to perform the job (e.g. standing, walking, climbing, pushing, pulling, lifting, etc.) The completed, written job descriptions are forwarded to the physician for review in order to effectively address return to work decisions and appropriate physical restrictions if needed. The Essential Functions of the job are those tasks which, if removed, would fundamentally alter the job.
