Discomfort Survey

  • This research-based survey will identify workers who are likely to seek medical attention soon for work-related discomfort.
  • Instead of dealing with injuries reactively (costly in terms of direct and indirect costs), our Discomfort Survey report identifies areas of concern quickly, and even provides direction for how to address them proactively.
