Managing Workers & Lost Time

“The workplace and the health of the workers within it are inextricably linked. Ideally, workplaces should not only protect the safety and wellbeing of employees but also provide them opportunities for better long-term health and enhanced quality of life. Effective workplace programs, policies, and environments which are health-focused and worker-centered have the potential to significantly benefit employers, employees, their families, and communities.” http://www.cdc.gov/WorkplaceHealthPromotion/ downloaded 7/13/13
Managing Workers and Lost Time – Are You Prepared? Silhouette Consulting will assist you in determining if you have practices in place which insure the most healthy workplace, and that when someone is off due to injury or illness you are ready to help transition them back to work. By analyzing the patterns of work disruption — days off work, how & where work-related injuries occur, and the most common non-work related conditions leading to lost time — solutions can be implemented to reduce lost time. Our services include reviewing and/or developing:
  • Functional job descriptions
  • Return-to-work program and policies (including collaboration with the Occupational Health Provider)
  • Education and training
  • Ergonomics and work injury prevention
  • Workers compensation process
Studies have shown that health and productivity are connected. Silhouette works with employers to establish a long term vision and implementation of best practices. Our goal is to help employers achieve a healthy workplace that contributes to a productive workplace.
