Ergonomics

An injury prevention strategy that works

A serious accident brings workplace safety into sharp focus instantly, but injuries that develop over time are potentially even more costly. They’re also preventable when you and your co-workers are trained and empowered to stay healthy and productive.

Mayo Clinic Health System Occupational Health has highly trained staff who specialize in analyzing and addressing issues that create mismatches for employees at the job site with the work environment, work techniques or work habits. These issues can lead to fatigue, discomfort, pain and ultimately, disability. Any one of these has a price tag in terms of your health and well being, lost productivity, medical costs and workers’ compensation expenses.

We have one of only nine ergonomists in the state of Wisconsin on staff.

Dramatically reduce your incident rate

We begin with analysis of your claims history and examine current risk factors within your organization. We then develop specific recommendations:

  • A customized medical management program
  • A business plan for eradicating injury-related loss
  • Specific recommendations for equipment and workstation modification.
  • Job task-specific training provided to employees, supervisors and safety professionals
