The Wine Industry Job Dictionary (Job Dictionary), developed by the South Australian Wine Industry Association, identifies specific tasks and physical demands of 18 common jobs in the wine industry. In the unfortunate event of an employee sustaining an injury at work, the Job Dictionary can assist service providers to understand the employee’s pre-injury job and identify suitable duties that can be performed safely by the employee which will result in better “return to work” outcomes for employees.
The development of the Job Dictionary was made possible due to funding provided by Employers Mutual Limited’s “Employer Association Cash Incentive Grants”.
By using the wine industry job dictionary employees and employers will be able to achieve a range of benefits including:
• improved return to work outcomes;
• reduced workplace injuries; and,
• the ability to use the job dictionary as a pre-employment functional capacity assessment tool (i.e. matching the physical capability of employees with the duties / tasks to be performed).
