The Industrial Rehab Program is dedicated to creating a safer work environment for employees, reducing costs from work-related injuries and helping injured employees return to their jobs.
The programs are designed to prevent or reduce common work-related injuries. All safety classes can be designed to fit a company's specific needs.
The available programs are:
The team includes members licensed in occupational therapy, physical therapy and industrial specialization. Other team members whose expertise can be called upon are dietitians, psychologists and vocational rehabilitation counselors.
The staff is trained to perform Job Analysis at the work site. A Job Analysis is a professional analysis of a particular job or task that includes observing the following factors: work station design, tools and machines used, length and number of breaks, work environment, work equipment and materials and ergonomic efficiency.
A Job Analysis provides the therapist with the data needed to recommend job modifications, develop Work Conditioning Programs, create preemployment screenings, provide on-site prevention classes or design specialized programs.
A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) of the injured employee is conducted to determine the employee's capability to return to work. Our facility utilizes the Ergoscience Functional Capacity Evaluation, which uses a scoring system for determining an accurate level of work and projecting patient abilities out to an eight-hour day. The evaluation takes three to four hours in a single day and covers all demands of work defined by the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT). Individual tasks of the test may be selected for job-specific testing or post-offer screening. The evaluation can be requested by any party involved in the client's injury recovery, and recommendations are given for entering the Work Conditioning Program, returning to work or a combination of the two.

These options are available in preparation for returning the client to full duty status.
