Our Worksite Prevention Program is designed to educate employers and employees about on-the-job health risks. The program includes additional screening options designed to identify job demands and evaluate the fitness of job candidates.

This program is intended to promote daily stretching prior to the start of each work shift to reduce the risk of chronic pain and injuries on the job. Regular daily stretching has been shown to aid in reducing the risk of injury as well as chronic joint and muscle pain.

Supporting materials are developed based on the company, including stretching pictures and other employee materials.

The Back to School Program educates employees and employers about factors that can contribute to potential back injuries. The overall objective of the program is to protect the worker from injury and protect the employer from avoidable costs. The program is held in a classroom setting with a recommended class size of up to 20 participants.
This one-hour class explores and explains back injury prevention techniques, with particular attention to proper posture, stretching and strengthening.

Job site analysis can identify stressors and risk factors that could lead to potential injury. It can also help identify a problem job or area in which injuries have already occurred.

The purpose of Essential Function Screens (EFS) or Post-Offer Screens is to evaluate potential job candidates' abilities to perform the job functions outlined in the job description. Taking a proactive approach to avoiding work-related injuries can reduce the cost your company suffers from the loss of productivity. The screens are developed based on Job Demand Analysis (JDA) findings.
