Banner Physical Therapy's WorkStrategies® Program helps employers, case managers and insurers when it comes to hiring and educating employees on work and workplace safety.
What is the WorkStrategies Program?
Through our WorkStrategies® Program, our proven, comprehensive approach focuses on three key areas of work injuries and workers’ compensation:
- Reducing the number of injuries that occur on your job site
- Providing effective treatments for employees who are injured, including physical therapy and occupational therapy
- Getting your employees back to work faster
What Can I Expect from the WorkStrategies Program?
In addition to the three core strategies, our WorkStrategies program includes the following services:
- Post-Offer Employment Testing: This test can help employers determine if an individual can perform any physical jobs to minimize the risk of injury.
- Injury Prevention: This educational program helps safety professionals identify where musculoskeletal injuries can happen. This helps employers tailor educational programs to promote a safe working environment for onsite injury prevention.
- Ergonomic Programs: Our ergonomic program evaluates a specific work environment and its usual tasks to identify any risk factors that could result in musculoskeletal dysfunction.
- Customized Return-to-Work: This program is designed to provide therapeutic interventions and cost-effective treatments for work-related injuries.
- Work Hardening and Conditioning: This program helps injured employees get back to work after an injury that takes longer to heal due to remaining functional deficits or deconditioning.
- Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE): This evaluation measures strength, endurance, physical-demand work level and positional tolerance to define an injured employee’s physical capabilities after an injury.
- OnSite Services: Our Onsite Services help educate employers and employees on work safety strategies in order to prevent injury.
- Utilization Management System (UMS): The UMS services help combat the rising costs of workers’ compensation as evidence-based practice standards become more rigorous.
- Fire Department and First Responder Services: We provide a variety of resources to keep firefighters, first responders and emergency medical service (EMS) workers safe and on the job.
- Safe Patient Handling: Our Safe Patient Handling services educate nursing and residential care facilities on how to handle patients in order to reduce injuries for both parties.
