Prevention programs

Preventing the occurrence and recurrence of job-related injuries and illnesses is the key to reducing claims, experience modification factors, premiums and reserves. St. Luke’s Occupational Medicine provides a custom range of programs conducted by qualified professionals that can be conducted onsite or at our facilities:

  • Preventing Repetitive Motion Injuries in the Office Environment. Includes educating employees and management about the causes of repetitive motion injuries, at risk situations, body mechanics and preventive exercises.
  • Back Injury Prevention Program. This program addresses common safety hazards in the workplace and provides instruction on physical conditioning for the prevention of injuries. It includes instruction on ergonomic techniques for lifting and supervisor training in ongoing safety awareness and proper management of any injuries that do occur.
  • Functional Job Description Development. This program entails onsite evaluation of job function as it relates to the physical requirements of performing the job. The goals are to facilitate accurate placement of restricted duty employees, reduce the potential for injury or re-injury and assist in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  • Cumulative Trauma Prevention Programs. These programs may be presented to individuals or groups. They consist of onsite, multi-media presentations for supervisors and employees focusing on back injury and repetitive motion injury. Assistance in the development of employee exercise programs is included.
