Injury management strategies for the workplace
Comprehensive training programs are designed to improve the health and wellbeing of employees. Participants are educated on the risks that sustained and/or awkward postures and repetitive movements pose to their musculoskeletal health. Most importantly, employees are provided with effective strategies to properly manage these risks.
Our focus is to help employees understand the key ergonomic principles and how to apply these to their work environment. They gain valuable insight into important workplace health areas including workstation posture, task techniques, workflow management, break structure and the important role of exercise.
