It is impossible for providers to meet all the needs of employers and employees if they do not have access to accurate objective information about workers and their jobs. This information, which can only come from the workplace, includes physical and production demands, ergonomic risk factors, employee physical abilities and employee work method techniques.
Job specific work demands, which are essential for return to work (RTW) and stay at work (SAW) goal setting and planning, must be assessed at the workplace. When Onsite Solutions' providers are onsite, specific concerns can be addressed by collaborating with supervisors, nursing staff, and safety and human resource directors. Collaboration, combined with job specific functional testing, is the most effective way to return injured employees to productive work.
Providing onsite first aid level care, ergonomics and work method assessments for employees who report symptoms early can avoid injury and save money. Our providers, who have special training and experience onsite, can assess employees and coordinate this proactive approach with your existing personnel. Not only does this approach provide the best outcomes for employees, it reduces future injury risk, and can greatly decrease the number of recordable injuries and their associated costs.
