Physical Demands and Environmental Conditions
Physical Demands and Environmental Conditions are components of Worker Characteristics. Physical Demands analysis is a systematic way of describing the physical activities that a job requires. It is concerned only with the physical demands of the job; it is not concerned with the physical capacity of the worker. Environmental Conditions are the surroundings in which a job is performed. To be considered present, an Environmental Condition must be specific and related to the job.
We, at Stine, Inc. have attempted to classify each in one of five categories, which could involve up to 20 factors in physical demands and 14 factors in environmental conditions. Each position is performed as a constant routine in the job function or is occasionally performed. A further definition of each physical demand and/or environmental condition with the examples can be in the “Handbook for Job Analysis”: put out by the Department of Labor. This can be reviewed with the office manager at each store.
