Industrial Wellness

We are part of a nationwide network of providers trained in scientifically-proven and standardized methods of evaluating, educating, and treating work forces. This is done to outline using approaches originally developed by leaders in the field, Dennis and Susan Isernhagen of Duluth, Minnesota. From assessing a given job's tasks to worker education and rehabilitation, Work Well Systems and DSI Work Solutions have all these bases covered.

Functional Job Analysis

We evaluate each job and its individual tasks. This is done to determine the specific stresses on workers for a specific job.

Ergonomics Assessment

This is an evaluation of workstations and workers' positions. We recommend modifications when necessary to reduce stress, strain, and chances of potential injuries.

Pre-Work Screening

Once a job's physical requirements are known, a test is developed to place the right person in the appropriate job from a physical standpoint. The benefits include fewer chances of worker injuries and increased productivity due to physical fitness.

Functional Capacity Evaluations

A one or two-day test is performed to accurately determine what an employee's maximum abilities are. It will include general physical tasks as well as job-specific tasks as indicated.

Work Rehabilitation

Otherwise known as work hardening/conditioning, this program is done in our clinic. Using strength, endurance, or aerobic fitness, and job simulation components we focus on injured workers who want to get back in shape and return to full-time employment.
