Pro-Active Approach to Health and Safety Brings Provider On-Site
Workplace injuries are one of the leading causes of missed
days, low production, and job transfer. In 2016, nearly 3 million employees
reported a workplace injury/illness. Nearly half of those reported led to
restriction of work, job transfer, or days missed from work. Most of these
injuries are musculoskeletal in nature and include the neck and back. Attention
to ergonomics, the study of people’s efficiency in their working environment,
has been proven to help lessen muscle fatigue, increase productivity, and
reduce the number and severity of work-related musculoskeletal disorders.
Employers like Simon Pearce (Vermont-based maker of handcrafted glass and pottery) that take a proactive approach to preventing and addressing injuries see real reductions in lost work time, OSHA injuries reports, and worker’s compensation claims.
