Ergonomic Evaluations

Each year employers spend millions of dollars on costs associated with work-related injuries. Developing and supporting a work-safe mentality and ergonomic injury prevention program can mitigate or prevent out of control claim costs and foster a work environment that promotes health and safety. This all adds up to huge savings targeted at one of the primary insults to your bottom line. The intent of our ergonomic assessments is to prevent injuries, reduce claims and reduce costs of time lost from work.

The tools to help you achieve these goals include:

  • Ergonomic evaluations
  • Work station organization
  • Evaluation of needed equipment
  • Task-specific ergonomic redesign
  • Body mechanics training
  • Development of safe work practices
  • Product recommendations
  • Follow up to support safe work practices and your injury prevention program


Vocational Expert Testimony

Quality vocational determinations lead to successful legal outcomes. RPM counselors have extensive experience testifying at the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals defending prior vocational determinations and performing forensic reviews. We provide thorough forensic case file review, which allows us to make appropriate vocational recommendations both in court and through the settlement process. RPM offers years of experience as well as credentials to include CDMS (Certified Disability Management Specialist).
