The mission of Tri-State Physical Therapy as a part of WorkSTEPS program is to create a safer, more productive workplace. The WorkSTEPS program effectively reduces the incidence rate of work injury and associated industry cost, achieved through injury prevention and rehabilitation management.
WorkSTEPS developed the program in response to an industry need for reliable, medically safe, legally defensible employment testing programs which could effectively reduce workplace injury incidence and workplace injury costs. The program is based upon individualized, objective scientific data and collection and conforms fully to Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Guidelines for application of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Employers utilizing the WorkSTEPS program are experiencing average work injury reductions of 50% during the first year of implementation with continued reductions in the second and third years. Expect these benefits:
- Decreased turnover
