Ege WorkSmart Solutions, PC About Us


FUNCTION FOLLOWS FORM

It's often been
said that there's a right
way and wrong way to do
everything. Sounds simple, but
it comes to the people performing
tasks in the workplace, the differenc-
es. can be subtle. Even the slightest
nuances in how jobs are performed can
have a long-term effect, both negative
and positive. In some instances, it can
take years for a problem to manifest it-
self as an injury. Subsequently, many
of these situations go unnoticed and
uncorrected for too long. Click

WHAT WE DO

Ege WorkSmart Solutions provides a wide variety of work injury management, prevention, and wellness services. These services are offered as Business Tools to employers which are designed to effectively reduce injury-related costs and improve the overall wellness of the worker. Services include:


EARLY INTERVENTION

An important element in positively addressing work-related musculoskeletal injuries is through Early Intervention strategies. This process is triggered by an employee report of musculoskeletal pain or discomfort. The employee's complaint is evaluated by a licensed rehabilitation professional and an intervention/first-aid strategy is developed. This process includes a job assessment that identifies potential MSD stressors that could be linked to the employee's complaints. Recommendations regarding work technique modification, exercises, first-aid, or ergonomic intervention are then determined. Follow-up would then occur on a weekly basis to assess improvement.


FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY ASSESSMENT

The DSI Functional Capacity Assessment (FCA) is a standardized physical test that measures an injured worker's abilities. In the DSI FCA, workers perform various activities that simulate on-the-job work tasks. These activities can then be matched to the specific tasks of a certain job. The DSI FCA is based on clinical research and combines the highest level of safety with objective findings.

JOB FUNCTION TESTING (JFT)

The JFT is the first step employers can take in preventing injuries because it matches work and the worker. This ADA compliant functional test is used to determine an individual's ability to safely perform the physical requirements of a specific job. Based on validated Job Function Descriptions (JFDs) to ensure job-relatedness, the JFT provides specific correlations between job demands and an applicant's physical abilities. It can be used for hiring, job transfers, and return to work situations.


JOB FUNCTION ANALYSIS (JFA)

A Job Function Analysis (JFA) is a comprehensive, objective, and structured process of evaluating the physical aspects of work, the worker, and the worksite. Applications for both office and industrial settings are utilized. The JFA process objectively quantifies, measures, and categorizes the active components of the job, including required movements, forces, weights, and postures. The data from the JFA can then be used to assist with development of Job Function Descriptions (JFDs), Job Function Tests (JFTs), ergonomic modifications, customized educational programs, and return to work programs.


ERGONOMIC ANALYSIS & TRAINING
Services include: Office, Retail, and Manufacturing

Employers are provided direction regarding existence of exposure to musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) risk and hazards. Using a functional and biomechanical approach, recommendations for eliminating risks of MSD injuries are identified to improve the safety of the work environment, overall productivity, and the health of the workforce. Application of various industry standards relative to occupational health, safety, and ergonomics are used as part of the analysis process. Educational presentations are customized to meet the unique needs of the employer (supervisors and employees). Topics such as work site stretching, back safety, musculoskeletal disorders, and ergonomics are offered.
