"I'd like to say how much we appreciate the services provided by EK Health Services, Inc. EK Health has been providing us with superior on-site services for over 5 years. These services include all aspects of an Ergonomics Program and Workers' Compensation oversight.
EK Health staff is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Our primary EK onsite consultant interacts effectively with all levels of the organization and our Workers' Compensation Insurance representatives. She implements the Ergonomics Program that targets new employees by providing them with an ergonomic evaluation and work station set-up within 2 weeks of hire. She builds positive working relationships that help identify workers' ergonomic issues before they become an injury. She also works closely with Human Resources and our insurance carriers to ensure our employees get timely and appropriate medical care. By doing this not only has she been instrumental in saving us $100,000s in Workers' Compensation cost, but she has contributed to the healthfulness and happiness of our workforce.
Thank you EK Health Services for providing us such a wonderful service and professional consultant."
