What to Expect

While many employees readily adapt to whatever work stations are provided to them, often times these spaces are not ideally suited for the unique needs of each of your employees. Basic equipment, including desks and chairs should be evaluated to provide optimum alignment for the prevention of back problems and other preventable conditions that could result from unnecessary bending, twisting, reaching or consistent poor or inadequate lumbar support.

An onsite assessment will be conducted of specific work areas with a report provided to you consisting of basic recommendations for modifications to individual work spaces and group work areas. In addition, our staff can come to your worksite to educate your employees around preventing work related injuries. Information regarding proper stretching and lifting techniques for example are included in the recommendations through your partnership with Saint Luke’s Health System.
