There are over 10,000 injuries in the U.S., every day.
Many businesses, along with the people they employ suffer equally in the costly and negative consequences of MSD Injuries. Some people suffer for weeks and many suffer for years.
You probably even know one or two.
Back, neck, shoulder, knee and wrist injuries are the most common and costly MSD Injuries. If a business has employees it’s not a matter of “If” employees will suffer an injury, it’s really a matter of “When.” More importantly, even during a period of time where there are no recordable injuries, there is still damage accumulating (cumulative stress, trauma and age related factors), the results just haven’t shown up on the books “Yet.”
75% of Injuries Are Unreported!
MSDs are one of the biggest financial threats organizations face in the 21st Century.
MSD Injuries, the conditions which lead up to them and the consequences which live on for years after an employee returns to work, cost both employers and employees hundreds of billions of dollars every year. This is not a model of efficiency and is not a model which would give a company the competitive edge necessary for success in any economy.
Our training programs not only prevent loss, our tried and tested process actually improves employee health and fitness, increasing human efficiency and productivity, converting loss into new layers of profit. There are no winners when an injury occurs, except for surgeons, drug manufacturers and insurance carriers.
Why is that?
Just Follow the Money!
Insurance: When was the last time the cost of insurance went down?
Surgeries: There are 500,000 Carpal Tunnel Surgeries and 800,000
Back Surgeries “Every Year” in the United States.
Medicine: A JAMA study found an alarming 171% increase in
Pharmaceutical Expenditures for Back Pain Treatment.
The amount of money spent on back pain is equal to
what is spent on cancer, and growing.
Many companies are surprised when they find out how many employees suffer from preventable fatigue, discomfort and pain, on a daily basis.
80% of the Average Workforce Suffers from these Conditions Every Day.
87% are Musculoskeletal
A major study showed that due to these conditions an average of 50% of a company’s workforce is non-productive 5.5 hours every week. That is a lot of time and money wasted!
Is your company hiring people who may be predisposed to becoming injured? Are your aging workers staying on the job longer than they planned? Are your new hires properly trained, so that they have the absolute best chance to stay injury free, for life?
Today, every employer is feeling the pain from
rising healthcare, treatment and insurance costs.
Whether your business is already taking a big financial hit, or you see trouble looming ahead, we see this as an epidemic with no end in sight. At least not until effective preventative measures and solutions are properly put in place.
Today, many businesses are simply doing the same or more work with less people, and without a strategic plan designed to reap the huge benefits derived from an Injury Free workforce.
“Benefits which pay dividends for life.”
Many companies experience roller coaster metrics, where injuries improve for a period of time, only to decline again. This often leaves management searching for solutions to age old problems. Problems which are difficult at best to cure without expert outside assistance and without truly changing the long term: habits, behaviors, postures and the culture of an entire workforce.
That may sound like a lofty goal to achieve, however that is precisely what our process accomplishes – time after time. Our process bridges any gaps between Management, Supervision and Line Personnel where prevention is concerned, and grows sustainable, positive behavioral change from the inside out.
Just The Facts
There isn’t a single person on this planet who was born with an “Owners Manual for their Spine.” In fact, the only schooling most people get about their spine is from the school of “Hard Knocks. Cumulative stress and microtraumas, which are small injuries or damage occurring at a level that employees can’t even feel, until it’s too late.
When you look at any given workforce, know that “Only 1 person out of 20 truly understands why and knows how to prevent an MSD Injury,” and less than 5% of an average workforce possesses all of the skills necessary to ensure a long term, injury free, career and life. These are just a few of the leading indicators which create costly negative consequences.
The word “Pain” always gets people’s attention. Fatigue, discomfort and pain are rarely spoken about out loud, and employees rarely learn from their coworker’s misery. Just think of the buzz it would if your next injured worker had to wear a big red bow around their waste for 30 days upon returning to work, or carry a sign that says “I thought is wouldn’t happen to me.”.
Coworkers would be running up to Bob saying, “What happened to you?”
Just ask one of your employees to explain exactly how cumulative stress affects their spine?
Ask another employee to tell you what the back stress factor is, or to name the 3 things they need to have in place to counteract cumulative stress, the aging process and effectively prevent an injury for life? You probably won’t like the answers and your company certainly won’t like paying the bill when they become injured.
Those are just a few examples of what makes changing these outcomes for the better difficult to achieve without a plan and process to achieve success. This is especially true when attempting to improve what amounts to “Behaviors and Personal Choices” without the assistance of an expert, neutral third party presence.
