Healthcare and Industry Injury Reduction
While most every industry has squeeze out the unnecessary expenses since 2008, work injuries continue to be a wild card on the balance sheet. Our Functional Ergonomics program is the only back injury prevention program supported by a 5 year study that resulted in reducing time lost to work injuries by over 70%. Too often work safety training is reviewed showing a man lifting a box in the middle of the floor. Rarely are boxes stored in the middle of the floor. In the healthcare industry the employees that incur the greatest number of injuries do so transferring 200-300lb patients and not 30 lb. boxes. Many industries are failing to properly train their staff.
We applied our program in a healthcare setting with over 800 employees. For the duration of the 5 year study, not only did we reduce time lost by over 70%, but we reduced the expense by tens of thousands of dollars each quarter.
