WORK INJURY MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS
Work injury management programs are comprehensive in nature. They span the hire-to-retire process and can significantly cut down on employer's workers' compensation costs. They address injury data, injury policy and procedures, hiring, training, medical management consultation, modified duty, and injury prevention.

ERGONOMIC ANALYSIS
Ergonomics is the science of matching the job to the worker and the product to the user. An effective match is one which optimizes:
  • Working Efficiency (performance, productivity, etc.)
  • Health & Safety
  • Comfort and ease of use

JOB ANALYSIS
A job analysis provides the information necessary to define the physical capacities required to perform the essential functions of a job. The report is used during the hiring process, return to work process, and if appropriate for accommodation or modification during Americans with Disabilities Act cases.

TRANSITIONAL RETURN TO WORK PROGRAMS
Transitional return to work programs are used when a worker is not ready to either perform all the demands of his/her job, is able to perform all of the demands but not on a full-time basis, or has had a failed attempt at returning to work. Return to work barriers are addressed on-site. The worker's tolerance is monitored and upgrades to time and activity are made as indicated. The program is typically preceded by a FCE to determine at what level to start the worker and how quickly to progress.

INJURY PREVENTION PROGRAMS
Injury Prevention Programs involve but are not limited to data analysis, risk analysis, management education, employee education, and follow-up. The goal is to decrease the rate and severity that injuries are occurring at, and to help keep a company's bottom line intact.

AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA) CONSULTING
Can a worker do the job? If not, can the worker be accommodated or the job modified to allow the worker to perform the job? ADA consulting provides whatever services are necessary to answer these questions.

PRE-PLACEMENT/POST-OFFER FUNCTIONAL SCREENS
These screens are a way to evaluate if applicants exhibit the physical capabilities required to perform the essential functions of the job. The screens are usually performed for high-risk jobs that typically involve heavy lifting and carrying. The screens are developed from a functional job description. Use of pre-placement screens aid both in the hiring and return-to-work processes and avoids hiring individuals who are unable to perform the job safely.
