Work Site Assessment
Our physiotherapists can come to your work site to assess and analyse the tasks required for you to perform your job. They will take into account the physical environment, tools and equipment required for the work, as well as the physical and ergonomic demands of the work.
The physiotherapists will then be able to write a report outlining the requirements of the work and if necessary make recommendations.
If an employee is having any difficulty with the work, or has an injury, the physiotherapists can formulate plans to rehabilitate, or make changes to ensure safe work environment.
