Outcomes of Work-Site Assessments

On Tuesday, we talked about assessments and how we conduct those. On Friday, we talked about the different types of assessments. Today, we’ll discuss the outcomes of assessments.

Whatever type of assessment is undertaken, the outcome of the assessment is:

  • Identification of significant workplace and home barriers and functional limitations that prevent completion of desired tasks.
  • The opportunity to discuss desired work-site modifications, possible task restructuring, or the assignment of certain hard-to-perform tasks to others.
  • The opportunity to formulate specific goals and action plans that will help the farmer or rancher increase independence, productivity, and profitability.

We use assessments to help you get ahead!

The process of assessing is a problem-solving, give-and-take activity. The producer and the AgrAbility staff member talk things through, clarify priorities, discuss alternatives, and suggest safety and health improvements. Working in partnership with the farmer or rancher, Wyoming AgrAbility works to help the farmer or rancher continue to do what he or she loves—farm or ranch.
