Social farming and the inclusion of disabled people into farm work have become more and more important in Austria during the last few years. In order to facilitate a good work integration of disabled people, their capabilities and work productivity needs to be determined. This was done by work-time-measurements and ability-analysis for Brighton lettuce production. The work ability of the disabled people was determined with a two-sheet questionnaire. The first part consisted of items from the IMBA (Integration von Menschen mit Behinderung) method, the second of items from the Mini-ICF-APP (Internationale Klassifikation der Funktionsfähikgeit, Behinderung und Gesundheit für Aktivitäts- und Partizipationsstörungen bei psychischen Erkrankungen). The production of Brighton lettuce was split into five different „work operations“, namely the production of soil cubes, sowing, planting, weeding and harvesting. The work-time-measurements were taken on the „Gin-Gärtnerhof“. Each “operation” was subdivided into “sub-operations” which were again subdivided into “work elements”. To measure the “work elements” a pocket PC and the software “ORTIM b3” were used. This work shows that a higher job performance can be reached, when disabled people work in fields suitable to their abilities. The placement of disabled people in a work field compatible to their abilities implies feelings of success and little frustration, which positively affects the person’s self-esteem and mental health.
