Intermittent absence management
An assessment performed on employees who have been absent periodically, for reasons self-identified as of a medical nature, which determines if future absence may be expected and medically justified and/or if workplace accommodations may be necessary to help reduce absences.
An assessment that provides guidance and support to employees with medical needs that are not totally disabling but may require workplace accommodation based on medical requirements.
An on-site assessment that identifies any possible risk factors such as repetitive movements, uncomfortable work postures and carrying heavy loads, and provides an employee with education on workstation set-up and mechanics. Employers are also provided with recommendations on modification to equipment or workspace. This service can help employers optimize the physical environment of an employee’s workspace to prevent or address an injury or illness and create safe work environments.
