Functional Job Description module is now available within EMsafe

Friday, 15 April 2016

We are pleased to announce that the Functional Job Description module is now available within the EMsafe system.

Functional job descriptions provide detailed information about the functional requirements and skills of a specific role within the workplace. They can help you to:

  • understand the functional requirements of each role to assist with accurate pre-employment testing when recruiting new employees
  • assist in the identification of suitable duties when an employee is injured, and
  • assist treating doctors to understand what a role requires when signing off pre-injury duties.


To make the process of creating functional job descriptions easier, we have created a Functional Job Description module within EMsafe. This new module contains an electronic template which, when completed, will enable you to establish the functional requirements and skills of a role. Completed forms will be stored electronically in your EMsafe workplace for ease of reference.

This module has been added to all members' EMsafe accounts and is free to access for all EML members.
