There is little worse than waking up in pain in the morning and knowing that you have to go to work and spend the day in a position that will make the pain worse. However, this is probably how many of your employees feel every day. You can help prevent this and improve safety with workplace injury prevention training programs.
Many work place injuries are preventable, and so is the pain and time off needed to recuperate. All that is needed to achieve this is a better understanding of the effects of elements such as bad posture and poor working practices on the body. A great deal of research has been undertaken into the effects of sitting at a desk all day and of working at a computer screen for extended periods of time. However, the illness problems remain, either because companies and staff are not aware of the correlations, or because they do not know how to make the changes necessary to prevent or minimise the problems. Injury prevention and management starts with knowledge and this is gained through training and support from professionals. Training as part of a corporate wellness initiative allows business owners, managers and employees to understand what is wrong with the workspace and how it can be improved. Just as importantly, they will know what they can do as individuals to support their own bodies’ needs and reduce the stresses and strains that the musculoskeletal system is put under on a daily basis. Small things from properly adjusted chairs and screens to effective typing positions can make all the difference.
