The Benefits of Onsite Evaluations

Onsite evaluations play a critical role in workplace safety. The evaluations are part of a comprehensive industrial rehabilitation plan for an employee returning to work and act as an education and accident prevention tool. The benefits of Onsite Evaluations are two-fold.

Onsite Evaluations are part of an industrial management solution.

Education Benefits Both the Employer and the Employee

You may be an employee returning to work after a long illness, accident, or workplace injury or an employer needing early accident intervention. An Onsite Evaluation provides many benefits, including:

  • Decreases employee injuries
  • Increases productivity
  • Improves work conditions
  • Decreases employee turnover by improving morale
  • Provide education to manage injuries effectively
  • Reduce worker’s compensation costs

The Onsite Evaluation and What to Expect

A specialized therapist from The Therapy Network will visit your location to provide a thorough assessment.

If you have an employee returning to work, the therapist will do a job demand analysis and a needs assessment. Work conditioning is a vital part of your employee’s return-to-work plan, and the onsite evaluation will provide the therapist with needed information.

The Therapy Network’s specialists are certified in workplace ergonomics and will provide comprehensive injury prevention solutions after their visit. Plans will be tailored to your unique workspaces. During or after the onsite visit, the therapist will do the following:

  • Evaluate the ergonomics and safety of workstations
  • Review any current employee education materials
  • Complete an injury risk assessment
  • Provide feedback for Body Mechanics Training
  • Suggest changes or improvements to employee education methods
