Summary

In these conference proceedings on employing workers with physical disabilities, an overview describes the scope of the need for modifying worksites. It emphasizes the need for a functional evaluation of the person's capabilities and an understanding of individual differences which must be considered in the design of assistive devices. Also described are disincentives to finding a job or hiring a worker with a disability. "The Process of Designing for the Handicapped Worker" outlines steps in the job design process, especially task analysis of jobs and functional analysis of disabilities. "The Rehabilitation Process" describes three types of rehabilitation situations: an acute catastrophic injury, a developmental disability, and an industrial injury. "The Process of Accommodation" discusses modifications to the job, equipment, and facilities that will help an individual's performance in the areas of lifting and carrying, manual tasks, mobility, seating, hearing, and seeing. "Job Accommodation Resources" provides information on: (1) community-based resources such as ergonomists, vocational rehabilitation agencies, medical practitioners, etc.; and (2) resources for technical redesign and engineering, such as research centers and information systems. The paper concludes with a directory of resources. (JDD)
