Counseling Workers over 40: GULHEMP, a New Approach.
Meredith, Jack
This series of presentations describe a method of job counseling and placement for the middle-aged which combines pre-employment physical worker analysis with job analysis for effective matching of job requirements with worker capacities. The matching process involves these steps: (1) job analysis by an industrial engineer; (2) worker examination by medical staff including medical and social tests and histories; and (3) comparison between medical and job profiles and recommendation to employer. The profile is determined by Dr. Koyl's GULHEMP method (general physique, upper and lower extremities, hearing, eyesight, mentality and personality). Both physical and job analyses are scaled to these fitness categories. Advantages to this matching system of job placement include: (1) identification of medical problems and resulting referral and treatment; (2) sensitization of state employment agencies to the needs of middle aged workers; (3) assistance to employers in the placement of physically qualified workers to the satisfaction of both employer and employee; (4) lower incidence of illness and turnover "profiled" workers; and (5) a method to eliminate age, sex and race discrimination in employment.
