Medically Based Services:
Medical ergonomic services are available for anyone who is currently seeing a physician, chiropractor or therapist for discomfort experienced during the work day. This program is facilitated by MHealthy. You must have a physician prescription/referral prior to being scheduled.
In support of that commitment, Occupational Safety and Environmental Health (OSEH) provides ergonomic services designed to prevent work-related injuries often referred to as musculoskeletal disorders (MSD), repetitive strain injuries (RSI), and cumulative trauma disorders (CTD.) Through education, training, and on-site assessments we work with employees to reduce and/or eliminate risk factors associated with these disorders.
