Industrial Motions of Raleigh, NC Retains Contract with Cormetech, Inc. for Job Functional Testing to Develop a Safe Ergonomic Working Environment

Local workplace physical therapy expert offers job functionality testing for workplace safety.

    APEX, NC, September 24, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Industrial Motions, Inc. has been awarded a contract with Cormetech, Inc. to design and implement a Job Function Matching program for their Durham, North Carolina facility.

"Cormetech Inc., a joint equity company of proven industrial leaders, Corning Incorporated and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), is the leading producer of titania-based ceramic honeycomb catalyst for NOx emission control used in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems for air pollution control," said Frank Murray, President of Industrial Motions Inc.

Beginning in September 2011, Industrial Motions will analyze each job in the facility and design a Functional Job Description which will objectively lay out the physical demands of each position. From these descriptions, Job Function Tests will be created for each position. The tests are used to determine if a worker has the minimum physical ability to perform the job in question.

The Functional Job Descriptions and Job Function tests will be used to provide objective information to the medical community in the event of a work related injury. This information is essential for physicians involved in the return to work process of an injured worker. The system will also be used as part of the pre-hire/post-offer assessment to determine if an applicant will have the minimum physical ability to perform the job being offered to them.

Cormetech's goals with the implementation of this Job Function Matching program are to enhance their already excellent Safety and return to work program, and to conduct an ADA/EEOC compliant Physical Abilities test for all applicants. Frank Murray MSPT, President of Industrial Motions, Inc. says "the installation of this Job Function Matching system is only the first step in developing a long-term relationship between Cormetech, Inc. and Industrial Motions, Inc. This relationship will improve not only the overall health of the Cormetech's Durham facility, but also the health and wellness of each individual employee in the future."
