Workmen’s compensation claims can be extremely costly to employers, but there are ways to mitigate risk. WorkFit is a partnership between Barton Community College and Advanced Therapy & Sports Medicine dedicated to reducing work related injuries and associated costs for employers.
A WorkFit Workmen’s Compensation Symposium is set for 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20 in F-30, the Seminar Room of the Fine Arts Building at Barton Community College. Lunch will be included.
The deadline to reserve space is Friday, Sept. 16. Contact Krystall Barnes at 620-786-7575 or to reserve a spot.
The symposium will outline the benefits and return on investment of using WorkFit to test employees.
Employees, potential employees or new hires can receive physical capacity profile testing in 30 minutes. The test results give employers a benchmark for the physical capabilities of employees so they can match a job candidate’s strengths to a position. 
If an employee is injured on the job, the employer is responsible for the costs of rehabilitation only to the level the employee’s test results indicated.
