Occupational therapists can work with individuals to optimize their work environment to reduce work related stress, pain and injuries. Occupational therapists address both employers’ and employees’ concerns to modify tasks and workplace by providing recommendations that optimize a person-environmental fit that will ultimately allow each individual to perform to the best of their abilities by reducing risks of long term injuries.
Workplace ergonomic assessment and consultations may include:
- Office and work space assessment and modification
- Work space and task modification due to:
- Back and neck pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrom
- Return to work following an injury/illness
- Workplace stress management education program
