Industrial Rehabilitation – Safely and Timely Employee Return to Work

McLeod Industrial Rehabilitation is the industry’s resource for reducing overall costs by providing objective data in testing, treatment and job-site services in order to maximize the employee’s job performance.

  • Industrial Rehabilitation Brings an Advanced Return-to-Work System to Your Employees

    McLeod Industrial Rehabilitation furnishes an advanced system of evaluation, treatment, prevention services, disability management and pre-employment testing. Industrial Rehabilitation bolsters an employee’s return to work in a safe, timely manner through programs designed to treat the injured worker during the outpatient treatment phase.

  • Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) Identifies a Worker’s Capacity

    • FCE incorporates a series of functional and job related tests used to identify an individual’s work capacities. FCE generates information about an individual’s work ability, which can be compared with physical job requirements or Department of Labor work demand levels.

    Efficient, thorough testing uses objective data provided through our FCEs, enabling our professionals to recommend the best course of action for your employee. Recommendations may include:

    • Treatment goals for a work conditioning program,
    • Work hardening program or
    • Transitional duty.

    If needed, job requirements can be obtained by a job analysis.

  • Work Conditioning and Hardening Improves Performance, Prevents Injury

    These programs focus on return to work through activities, such as total body stretching, endurance/strengthening exercises, body mechanics instruction, work simulation and pain management. Additionally, these programs enhance safe job performance and injury prevention.

  • Testing Post-Offer or Pre-Employment Confirms An Employee’s Job Ability

    These screenings determine whether a job applicant can safely perform essential job tasks. The employer and the Work Recovery Center develop an objective screening test to match essential job functions.

  • Job Site Analysis Identifies Required Skills for Tasks

    This study of a job site can identify job functions, such as pushing, pulling, lifting, walking and climbing. The study contributes to:

    • Defining skills required for possible use in a job
    • Post-offer/pre-employment testing
    • Physical capability testing
    • Development of job descriptions
  • Injury Prevention/Reduction Training Seeks to Reduce Traumatic Disorders

    This training, for groups or individuals, provides instruction to reduce cumulative trauma disorders. Presentations (available on-site or at our facility) focus on benefits of safe work practices for:

    • Safe lifting techniques and practice
    • Fitness
    • Ergonomics in office and industrial settings
  • Ergonomic Studies Aim to Make the Workplace More Worker Friendly

    These studies look at the interaction of workers, their workspace, equipment and job tasks. We seek to help companies reduce repetitive injuries, as well as adapting the workplace for employee ease and productivity.
