Minnesota Occupational Health therapists work with employers and insurers to prevent cumulative trauma disorders, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tenosynovitis and tendonitis, or to review a general job type (covering infrastructure, operational demands, posture, use of materials handling equipment, etc.) or how one specific worker “fits” and interacts within the work environment.
Ergonomic reports to employers are confidential. These reports help focus and enhance worker safety strategies. They can also become the basis for creating ADA-compliant functional job descriptions used as part of a pre-placement functional testing program.
