Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
From the facts mentioned, you have a good worker who I take it you want to have continue on. You can reasonably accomodate him and are intent on doing so. His refusal to confirm statements is regretable, but I would not suggest taking any adverse action lest it lead to a claim of discrimination, retaliation etc. So I would suggest focusing on how to use him going forward and if can reduce lifting duties, do so at least in short term to reduce risk. Kindly rate me 5 stars.
thanks in advance.
