Worksite PT Clinic – the Easy Way to Fight High Injury Rates

It’s tough to keep employees healthy in a complicated clean room environment where simple, daily actions can cause injuries.

The worst culprits for injuries? Lifting wafers. Prolonged standing with arms out. Fetching in the fabrication process. And even constant walking that adds up to 15-20,000 steps a day.

When you prevent those injuries, that’s the big win. Reduced injury costs. Healthy employees. The fastest path to get there? An onsite injury prevention program.

Onsite Care – Small Footprint, Proven Results

  • Only a 10×10 space and minimal equipment.
  • Results – fewer workdays lost, fewer PT treatments required and savings of thousands per claim. Typical ROI: 3:1 to 6:1.
  • As a managed service, it requires little time when you use an experienced vendor.
  • Employees love the convenience and working with a familiar face. You’ll promote proactive health and create a warm and caring employee experience.

The Big Wins of a Worksite Clinic – Real World Examples

Lifting a Wafer during Fabrication

An employee felt the body strains of carrying an 8 inch wafer.  Onsite PT action: trained the employee how to lift wafer properly and modeled the correct wrist position for carrying.

Prolonged Standing with Arms Out

Employee experienced back fatigue and sore feet when frequently moving wafers. Onsite PT action: provided exercises like back bends and shoulder squeezes as well as micro breaks to prevent injuries.
