Strains and sprains are among the most common causes of lost work time and high workers’ compensation claims costs. Overexertion and repetitive movements can create strain, and back injuries are among the most significant and costly. Injury prevention programs are proven effective in reducing injuries, lowering workers’ compensation and other costs, and improving productivity, morale, products and services.
The Posture People offer key components for effective solutions: management and leadership involvement, effective employee participation, and ongoing program evaluation.
Musculoskeletal-related injuries are the most common form of work-related illness, and risk factors such as static or awkward postures, repetition, and forceful exertions can be found in virtually every occupation and workplace. Employees feeling discomfort have a hard time focusing, and are at a higher risk for pain and injury.
Stretching programs combined with education are the most effective method of preventing pain and strain and improving work performance.
