Can your employees SAFELY perform the essential functions of their job?
Is coming to work every day causing pain and physical agony to your employees?
How can you ensure your workforce can rise up and meet the physical demands asked of them each and every day?
How can evaluating your employees before they ever get on the road save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in lost work and injury claims?
How can you be sure you are hiring fit drivers that can perform their job duties without injury or liability to your company?
Is your employee’s health raising your insurance premiums?
Join Ruth Bowdish from On Demand Drug Testing & Work Solutions at the August OTSC meeting as she answers these questions and many more as we explore: Wellness in your Workforce
Workplace Wellness Programs have been proven to improve productivity and lower medical costs. With increasing number of employees that are aging, those working with chronic disease, and with high workers’ compensation premiums, helping people stay healthy costs much less than treating someone once they become ill or injured. Incorporating a Wellness Program can provide employers a way to manage employee health risks, improve productivity and reduce overall health care costs.
This 60 minute presentation will discuss the importance of your employee’s health and how it affects your bottom line. With topics such as:
- Reducing Risk Exposure
- Understanding the DOT physical – what it is and what it isn’t
- Fit for Duty exams
- Smoking Cessation
- Examining endurance
- Defining wellness in today’s terms
- A real-life demonstration of agility tests and why they matter on the road
- Prescription drug abuse
Make an investment in your employees and reap a lifetime of benefits!
