As part of Horizon Rehab’s Return to Work program, employees are educated about proper workplace conditioning, including lifting techniques, proper posture and ergonomics. Employees are monitored and data is collected in an effort to reduce risks for workplace injury and costs for employers.
An injured employee goes through a series of tests to help the employee, the employer and the employee’s physician determine if it is safe for the employee to return to work.
Employees are assessed on their ability to perform work-related tasks that include, lifting, positioning and movement. The employee’s effort, performance consistency and self-limiting behavior are also evaluated and documented to create customized Functional Capacity Evaluation.
Horizon Rehab will conduct job-specific assessments of several critical jobs at your facility. Potential employees are then screened based on the results of those assessments to determine if they can perform the expected job requirements.
When an employee is injured, Horizon Rehab offers a number of physical therapy and rehabilitation services that not only treat the injury, but educate employees on ways to avoid future injuries. Physical therapy services are available in our clinic or on-site at your facility.
