This training offers practical advice to supervisors and employees on how to reduce their risk of incurring back injuries through use of proper back care and body mechanics.

Early Return to Work Services

Early intervention strategies and early return to work programs result in decreased lost time, increased productivity, and decreased workers’ compensation and disability costs. Early intervention is the primary factor upon which the foundation of medical, psychosocial and vocational rehabilitation is established. Early return to work services explore opportunities, accommodations and supports for injured employees.
