Do your Safe Job Procedures cover how to move properly?
Most musculoskeletal injuries in the workplace are a result of employees accumulating the effects of years of using poor posture and movement habits during physical tasks. Many workplace injuries involve simple movements such as getting and out of equipment, bending and reaching with or without handling loads. Many everyday movements require proper posture and body use to be done in a risk-free manner. Let us show you how we have helped clients with daily physical tasks reinforce safe movement behaviour:
- to train workers how to do it,
- provide the materials to make it happen, and
- reinforce with follow up job coaching with supervisor involvement.
