The Importance of Physical Fitness for our Difficult Access and Rescue Technicians
TRR has contracted a third party to conduct a job demands analysis and developed a specific job demands test for workers based upon the physical requirements needed to perform effectively in rescue situations. TRR had an ergonomist tour the work environment and engage with the workers as they performed the essential tasks associated with their jobs. TRR’s Specific testing protocol was developed using analysis tools such as the rapid upper limb assessment (RU) and rapid entire body assessment (REBA). After several iterations we now a have highly specific and quantifiable performance measurement. Our technicians are tested in an environment very similar to the one they will be working in. They are tested by trained medical assessors who understand the jobs and will use equipment similar to what is used in the industrial environment. Individuals are educated throughout the testing process by teaching warm-ups and body mechanics.
TRR provides a kinesiological functional assessment analysis for each worker in the program, identifying any individual musculoskeletal problems prior to responding to an emergency. Our third-party provider provides recommendations on how to improve on the results they have received and during the testing also certify team members on manual handling training.
