Workers’ Compensation Claims Support

One of the primary tasks for an ergonomist is to observe a person performing a job and provide an objective evaluation of the physical demands and the potential risk of injury. The Center provides an unbiased view of the job demands and any associated risks. This information is critical in a workers’ compensation case, where the potential causes of the injury must be determined to evaluate work-relatedness and optimize the return-to-work process.

The Center has developed its physical demands description and ergonomics risk assessment tools to highlight the risk and potential causes of injury so that a company, its employees, and health care professionals can outline the best options for returning to work. Our ergonomists can work with your company to determine workstation or job modifications that will accommodate the injured employee and facilitate their return-to-work.
