On site Training is available to help provide Supervisors, Safety, Occupational Health Nurses, Ergonomists, and other injury prevention professionals a better understanding of the use and sizing of compression wear in the workplace. Conducted online (est. 30-minute duration), or in-person training, course content will include product design, understanding gradient compression, how to measure, size selection, and how to provide the best product fit.

Industry specific Fatigue Management Protocols (FMP’s) are developed based on the identified physical demands of the work and the occupational stressors encountered to accommodate production environments. Education is provided in use of Occupational compression wear and or performing stretch-type routines focused on enhancing muscle health by increasing the return of venous and lymphatic fluids. Protocols developed by our CLT’s ensure the correct sequence based on the body’s lymphatic drainage optimizing the clinical benefits.
Our goal is to help promote health and wellness while reducing costs associated with workplace injuries.
On Site Therapy’s approach to workplace ergonomics focuses on achieving sustainable gains in productivity while reducing workplace injuries. On Site Therapy applies quantitative ergonomics risk assessment methods to assess the need for change and enable ergonomic risk management. Ergonomic programs offer a quantifiable means to reduce the incident rates and lost workdays experienced by employers while providing a significant return on investment.
Physical Demands Analysis
Through on-line training On Site Therapy has the ability to work with any employer, insurer, attorney, and/or onsite healthcare provider in consulting how-to complete PDA’s, initiate train-the-trainer programs, and review reports for legal accuracy. Our approach differs by combining a human factors approach with the industrial time standard language of MODAPTS®. Positional and postural requirements can also be combined with the biomechanical nature of the work to assist in building a Fatigue Management Protocol.
According to the National Safety Council, the cost of workplace illnesses and injuries totals nearly $200 billion a year. As part of this equation, the government factors in such variables as workers’ compensation payments, medical expenses, new employee recruiting and training costs, lost productivity, equipment repair and even legal expenses. In fact, workplace injury is so rampant that U.S. employers pay nearly $1 billion per week on workers’ compensation benefits alone.
