Workforce Wellness Program
Stay ahead of on-the-job injuries and paid recovery time, with our Workforce Wellness Program. The program offers your workers a comprehensive education on injury prevention, injury treatment, nutrition, and fitness.
Importantly, worker's comp claims don't just apply to manual labor jobs. If your employee can prove that their chronic pain is linked to sitting or standing at work every day, they often have grounds to file a workers' compensation claim.
But don't worry. Our physical therapists have thorough knowledge and understanding of body mechanics and the various strains that can be put on our bodies throughout the workday. Whatever their job entails, employees will learn proper techniques for using their body strength on a daily basis and maintaining their long-term fitness.
You may benefit from our Workforce Wellness Program if your employees do any of the following strenuous activities:
- Stand on their feet for long periods of time
- Sit at a desk all day
- Bend and stretch to reach items
- Lift and carry loads or items
- And more
By learning injury prevention, your employees will be less likely to get hurt on the job, and you'll be less likely to deal with the workers’ compensation system.
Many employees jump into their jobs without knowing the right techniques for lifting, bending, standing, sitting, or working on their feet.
Your workers will learn how to care for their bodies, especially their back, neck, shoulders, and cores, to minimize strains and pain that happen at work. They'll also learn how to develop their range of motion to further prevent injuries on the job, along with exercises and stretches for the lower back to help prevent injuries that would develop over time.
We also educate employees about treating minor injuries if they do experience one. This helps ensure that a small problem doesn’t turn into a workers’ compensation case, which in turn helps save time and money dealing with insurance companies.
Our goal here is to help employees recognize when they might be experiencing a minor strain or soft tissue injury that hasn’t yet accelerated to the point of needing a doctor or physical therapist. By caring for themselves with hot or cold application, gentle stretching, and rest — they can prevent small issues from becoming serious injuries.
Furthermore, in your Workforce Wellness Program, a nutritionist will teach your employees about nutritional and cardiac health, so they can maintain good cardiovascular health and positive energy levels that lead to rewarding, productive days at work. Of course, good nutritional health helps lengthen the ongoing longevity of an employee's fitness for their job, and it helps them improve their fitness and quality of life outside of work as well.
Common Workers’ Compensation Injuries
No employer wants to deal with injuries on the job that can result in claims and compensation. Attending JAG-ONE PT’s Workforce Wellness Seminar helps prevent these issues by getting ahead of problems before they occur.
Common workers’ compensation injuries addressed include:
We also offer pre-employment testing, a physical evaluation that covers all body mechanics to assess ability before employees start working. Here, a physical therapist will assess workers to make sure they're physically ready to handle their workload.
We may test prospective employees' stamina, strength, range of motion, blood pressure, major vitals, and more. Our physical therapists may also ask whether your employees are experiencing pain from certain relevant activities.
Functional Movement Screen
A Functional Movement Screen (FMS) or Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is an optional phase to pre-employment testing that identifies any deficiencies in a person’s physical ability and then recommends a customized exercise program to improve them. These comprehensive evaluations also give employers a baseline for the status of workers' physical abilities.
