Workers returning from an injury are more than three times more likely to (re)injure themselves than uninjured workers. So it’s critical that employers enact a return to work program to ensure workers returning to the job from an injury or extended absence do so safely.
WorkSTEPS offers diverse programming specifically designed to objectively determine what an injured or impaired worker is capable of safely doing.
Get your workers back to “full duty quickly and safely with the following:
WorkSTEPS Functional Fit for Duty testing safely and objectively determines if an employee returning to work post-injury can still safely perform the essential functions of the job. Because treating physicians rarely measure functional performance as part of a rehabilitation and treatment process, it’s imperative that employers ensure that an employee has not deconditioned during their absence and recovery and are still able to safely perform the essential functions of the job.
Employees seeking a more individualized and data-driven programming should consider WorkSTEPS Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs) to help inform return-to-work and rehabilitation decisions. FCEs are full-body comprehensive medical tests used to measure an employee’s functional capacity and assist in injury management, whether the injury was sustained while at work or existed previously.
For positions that have regulatory requirements, Occupational Medical Exams cover a wide range of medical services which may be required or recommended to get someone back to work, such as CDL exams for commercial drivers or fit testing for someone using a new respirator model.
