Stop musculoskeletal injuries before they happen.
The Posture People’s injury prevention solutions are proven effective in reducing injuries and related cost, and improving the health of your workforce. We scale services to meet the needs of each client, and vary the number of hours based on the size of the workforce and location requirements. The most effective way to reduce injuries is to have one of our highly qualified team members onsite, identifying and controlling risk, training and reinforcing the focus on injury prevention.
Work-related MSDs can be prevented.
Musculoskeletal injuries occur after multiple exposures to risk factors at work, such as lifting heavy items, bending, reaching overhead, pushing and pulling heavy loads, working in awkward body postures and performing the same or similar tasks repetitively. Work-related MSDs are among the most frequently reported causes of lost or restricted work time. Ergonomics (fitting a job to a person) helps lessen muscle fatigue, increases productivity and reduces the number and severity of work-related MSDs. An ergonomic process is effective in reducing the risk of developing MSDs in industries with physically challenging jobs such as construction, manufacturing, healthcare, utilities, warehousing, and office jobs.
Workplace health and safety programs are most effective with a proactive approach. The Posture People programs focus on proactive, pre-discomfort interventions:
Key components of a comprehensive solution include management support, worker participation, training, risk and hazard analysis, proactive focus and early reporting, and implementing solutions to control hazards. Ongoing evaluation and management for continuous process improvement lead to long-term success.
