- 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

- 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

or the job modified to allow the worker to perform the job? ADA

- 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.
