Developing, Coordinating and Implementing Return to Work Plans

At Sizen Vocational Services, our Case Managers are highly-trained and experienced in vocational rehabilitation case management in the Minneapolis & St. Paul, MN area.

On-Site Job Analysis / Ergonomic Assessments

In appropriate cases, Sizen Vocational Services can evaluate the physical demands of existing and potential positions to determine whether an individual can effectively and safely handle those duties.

Sizen Vocational Services can also assess an employee’s workstation ergonomics to ensure that the workstation design is appropriate based on their medical restrictions. The goal is to minimize risk of injury and maximize productivity.

Vocational Test Administration, Interpretation and Guidance

If a qualified employee is contemplating a career change due to their work related injury and restrictions, vocational testing and interpretation may be necessary to identify appropriate vocational work options for further exploration.
