Comprehensive Industrial Services, Inc. (CIS Onsite) is a group of licensed professionals specializing the area of onsite therapy services. We offer two approaches to assist employers in addressing their workplace injuries, onsite therapy and early intervention.
CIS Onsite provides onsite therapy services for the injured worker. We provide most of the same services that a freestanding clinic does (i.e. outpatient orthopedic therapy center or hospital) but with several advantages, and all without compromising employee's care. In fact, by being onsite and having access to the real work environment and activities, we can expedite an employee's recovery process.
By physically being onsite, CIS Onsite therapists have the opportunity to:
Observe the employee's workstation and job activities. Design an individual treatment plan specifically based on the employee's working environment and physical demands of the job. Educate the employee on risk factors and risk prevention measures
Perform job position evaluations in which a licensed professional assesses an individual's job site and offers recommendations to maximize production while minimizing injuries
Perform ergonomic evaluations with recommendations and education
Implement stretching programs for at risk workers
Educate employees on proper body mechanics, work techniques and postures to minimize injuries
Increase production time by the employee, by eliminating the employee commuting to and from an offsite clinic
Educate / inform supervisors about risk factors that may be inherent with particular job settings and employee populations
Implement job specific activities as part of the employee's individual treatment plan
Transition employees back to work by working with them at their actual job site, using job specific equipment.
Our treatment plan is designed around the employee and his/her interaction with their working environment. Since we know first hand what the employee's work demands and risks are, we can fine tune a rehabilitation plan designed specifically to each individual for maximum rehabilitation while preventing further injuries in the future.
Injury prevention and treatment approaches are changing. The most proactive companies are finding ways to prevent injuries before they become a problem (i.e. OSHA recordables). It is a well-known fact in the rehabilitation world that the quicker a client reports signs and symptoms of an acute injury, the easier it is for that individual to recover. In other words, if an employee complains of a problems associated with work and the problem is addressed early enough, the chances of exacerbating the injury through repetitive work is greatly reduced.
CIS Onsite can offer a proactive program designed specifically for these employees.
Ø Early intervention program (EIP) - an experienced licensed therapist assesses employees experiencing early signs and symptoms of cumulative trauma disorders (CTD) or other mild strains and sprains. The therapist may recommend specialized stretches and modifications to the job or worker's technique in order to offset the signs and symptoms of a CTD before it results in lost time injury.
This program can be utilized by companies on an individual one-on-one basis or can be presented for entire departments, especially high-risk departments. Does an EIP visit constitute as an OSHA recordable? As long as the therapist provides only superficial heat, cold, massage, exercise and/or general education and consultation, the therapy visit constitutes a "first aid" visit according to OSHA and is NOT a recordable. The company cuts Workers' Compensation costs by avoiding costly physician visits, medical tests as well as costs associated with opening a worker's compensation file. Our EIP visits have saved companies 40-80% in the costs associated with similar worker's compensation claims.
By having an onsite proactive approach to preventing and treating the injured worker, employers can significantly reduce worker's compensation costs, improve productivity and promote a healthier workforce. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
