Work Risk Analysis
Petersen Physical Therapy’s work risk analysis is an assessment that goes beyond traditional “ergonomics” job design analysis. It also considers workers behaviors and their relationship to the risks of increasing injuries, costs and claims. It results in the development of a corrective action plan that addresses injuries, claims and costs as three separate but related issues. It is a comprehensive document that can be understood and used by individuals without a medical background. It essentially teaches you what your problems are how to fix them. This report becomes the initial draft of your Ergonomics Plan.
Management team training is an essential component of any training program. When training is one of the recommended corrective actions in the Work Risk Analysis, it is always starts with management and supervisor training. To assure success of any of our systems, it is essential to educate managers and supervisors regarding their role in the elimination of injuries, the reduction of claims, and the control of costs. Our training is designed to present the most current technology and the politics of prevention. The results are attitudes, skills and commitment being enhanced on the part of the management and leadership teams.
