Training and Reference Manual for Job Analysis. Interim Revision.
Bureau of Employment Security (DOL), Washington, DC.
Devoted to an explanation of the procedures used to analyze jobs and to record the analyses using the format of the Job Analysis Schedule of the U.S. Employment Service, this manual may be used in formal training courses or for self-training in job analysis. The categories necessary for a complete analysis of a job are what the worker does, how he does it, why he does it, and the skill involved in doing it. This information is used in such activities as recruitment and placement, vocational counseling, job and employee evaluation, training, and labor relations. The job analysis schedule is divided into informational areas of (1) identification data, (2) work performed, (3) sources of workers, (4) performance requirements, (5) comments, and (6) physical demands. A description of items within each informational area includes a discussion of procedures and methods used to secure detailed, valid, and authoritative occupational information. A narrative report accompanies the analysis schedule and offers the analyst an opportunity to present such information as purpose of the plant, plant environment factors, plant placement policies, and plant organization. Examples of completed job analysis forms are given in the appendixes. (HC)
