At-Clinic Early Intervention
Here is an excellent short video discussing Workplace Early Intervention Solutions.
For employers with only a few employees in one location, a dispersed workforce, and/or a limited budget to deploy services, At-Clinic Early Intervention may be a better service fit. This option provides as-needed access to a therapist or athletic trainer who are experts in musculoskeletal assessment and care. Services are provided within 24 business hours and are a less expensive non-reportable alternative option to emergency or urgent care centers. Atlas offers this program standalone or as supplement to an Onsite Early Intervention program.
We Address Symptoms
In many situations, employee discomfort can be addressed with first aid. However, it is crucial for a medically qualified individual to first assess the situation correctly and determine the proper course of action. It is equally important to address symptoms initially through first aid measures. First aid care including ice or heat, over-the-counter anti-inflammatories, elastic tape or non-rigid splinting, and postural balance stretching are some of the interventions provided.
We Work on the Cause
Addressing symptoms alone fails to address the cause of the discomfort. Atlas staff travels and works onsite with employees to provide the following services:
- Worksite Assessment – Reviewing job tasks and work positions to identify ergonomic stressors contributing to employee discomfort.
- Job Coaching –Counseling and educating employees in best practices to work in neutral posture, use of correct mechanics and tool selection.
We focus on getting your employee to the right provider, at the right time, and at the right cost to prevent a little problem from progressing to a full claim.
