Our physical and occupational therapists specialize in work injury management and go to the worksite to assess the job and your employee. We offer two types of job site evaluations:

Work risk assessment
  • Evaluate work activities, sequence of tasks, machines, tools and physical demands 
  • Recommend tools, job modifications, workstation setup 
  • Identify physical stressors and solutions to prevent or reduce injury
Job demand analysis

A thorough evaluation of the physical demands, shifts and workplace to inform: 

  • Essential functions and job descriptions 
  • Transitional duties for injured/restricted workers 
  • Job simulations for return-to-work program 
  • Potential for rotation programs
