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.
