1. Comprehensive Industrial Performance Enhancement Program

The Industrial Performance Enhancement program is data driven to guide effective decision making, positive outcomes, and track progress over time. Multiple screening tools are utilized to analyze the workstation and its employees to produce an effective corrective exercise program that will counter repetitive movement patterns, improve body awareness, and reduce the risk of injury.

Benefits for Employee:

  • Decreases frequency and severity of injury
  • Decreases injury related absenteeism
  • Increases work satisfaction

Benefits for Employer:

  • Reduces company cost due to reduced injury frequency
  • Reduces employee lost time from work
  • Reduces cost of workman's compensation insurance and decreased experience modification rate
  • Improves employee performance, satisfaction, and confidence with work environment

2. Early Intervention Clinic

Under the umbrella of "evaluation and first aid" as defined by the Department of Labor and OSHA, licensed physical therapists and certified athletic trainers are able to act as on site providers. While doing so, they are able to evaluate reported aches, discomfort, and soreness before they develop into musculoskeletal injuries. After evaluation, the on site provider is able to recommend changes in workstation ergonomics, implement stretching routines, or recommend reasonable accommodations. As a result, employee injury, pain, and work dissatisfaction is prevented while company costs are reduced. If a recordable injury has occurred, the on site provider is able to recommend appropriate referrals and assist with timeliness of care.

The Plan Includes:

  • Onsite screen of employees identified as having early signs of musculoskeletal dysfunction
  • Recommend stretches, exercises, and work modifications to prevent a potentially developing injury
  • Assessment of reported musculoskeletal injury, referral as needed, and appropriate follow up plan
  • First Aid as indicated
  • Communication with manager or safety coordinator

Benefits for Employee:

  • Decreases workplace injury and missed time from work
  • Improves timeliness of care when referrals are indicated
  • Creates a culture of being cared for and valued as an employee

Benefits for Employer:

  • Decreases workplace injury which improved workplace production
  • Decreases experience modification
  • Decreases cost of workman's compensation
  • Increases employee satisfaction

In addition to the standard Early Intervention Clinic setup, Taylor Therapy is able to structure the space being used similar to an athletic training room which could include items such as hot packs, foam rollers, slant boards, etc. These resources could be accessible to the employees before and after work, outside of standard clinic hours, to continue to promote a culture of overall wellness.

3. Functional Movement Screen

This objective tool assesses movement patterns and observes mobility and stability deficits through the body. This screen provides a score, which helps determine if an individual is at risk for injury while completing physical activity. This information is utilized when designing a corrective exercise plan. Implementation of the corrective exercise plan scheduled and billed separately. The functional movement screen can be utilized in multiple ways. First, at workstation(s) that have a history of or may be currently experiencing frequent injuries. Secondly, it can be utilized as a screening tool to prevent injuries.

4. Job Demands Analysis (JDA)

Healthcare professional assesses the workstation by taking various measurements to identify the specific physical and environmental requirements of a job. This information is utilized to make educated decisions on workstation modifications to prevent injuries, reduce injuries if they frequently occur, and to implement corrective exercises.
