On-site care

ATI’s Worksite Solutions (AWS), which works on-site to reduce workplace injuries, is another aspect of the partnership, which will be introduced in a phased approach in specific departments across the West Lafayette campus.

AWS provides a dedicated team to work onsite with Purdue employees to reduce injuries and improve wellness via early intervention as they address early signs and symptoms of musculoskeletal disorder. The program will help increase employee engagement and productivity while decreasing OSHA recordables, lost time, number of workers’ compensation claims and more. Through the on-site program, the AWS certified early intervention specialist will provide:

  • Direct employee engagement in the workplace
  • Job coaching
  • Body mechanics and body awareness
  • Preventive mobility programing and education
  • Dynamic movement assessments and training
  • Health and wellness support

Virtual care

Also designed to be introduced in a phased approach is an intuitive interface to help employees working remotely. Through an E-learning assessment, employees will be able to understand their risks and supply immediate feedback to the ATI on-site team. This 24/7 virtual resource provides employees access to ergonomic expertise, solutions to risk and more leverages clear visuals and provides a direct path between employees working remotely and the on-site care team. Employees can relay concerns, which then enables the on-site team to proactively target and educate employees.
