You can prevent injuries before they happen by developing an effective injury prevention strategy, assessing the workplace and ensuring staff have the knowledge they need to be successful. Injury prevention is provided for all industries, including the office setting, construction site, heavy manufacturing, light manufacturing, meatpacking, warehousing, agribusiness, food services, transportation and health care settings.
Injury prevention strategy
Planning ahead can reduce your incident rates, keep your employees safe and help them work to their full potential.
Referral for injury prevention can come from both physicians and employers:
Physician referrals: Our team assists the employee with medical management strategies and provides them with injury prevention techniques.
Employer referrals: Our team assists employees with eliminating ergonomic design mismatches and technique mismatches. We collaborate with managers and supervisors to help them understand how best to provide rapport, effective training and sustainable coaching methods.
An occupational therapist will assess your workplace ergonomics and provide recommendations for improvement. Assessments can be provided individually for an employee or injured worker, or they can be provided for an entire department or company. The occupational therapist will collaborate with your leadership team to ensure a safe workplace.
Not all treatments, tests and services are available at all Mayo Clinic Health System locations. Check with your preferred location in advance.
