The Ergonomic Professional's Role under ADA Title I

Presenter: Roy O. Matheson, ADAC, managing partner, Reasonable Accommodation LLC

Ergonomic evaluation specialists are ideally situated to add immediate value to the services they offer by combining ergonomic evaluation skills with solid knowledge of the requirements of Title I (Employment) of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the demands of Section 503 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act. Seeking to remain in compliance with these federal statutes -- public, private, and government employers need defendable answers to questions about the physical demands and inherent risks of job tasks.

This webinar will discuss work measurement techniques supported by recent federal court cases, your role in managing the reasonable accommodation process, the support you can give in direct threat situations and the drafting of acceptable essential function task statements.
