Significantly reduce or prevent MSDs in the workplace.
According to OSHA, MSDs represent 62% of all workers’ compensation claims and result in $15-20 billion in lost work time and workers’ compensation costs every year. What can you do to prevent MSDs?
Need to improve communication and teamwork?
You work hard to protect your financial capital; what about your human capital? Invest in your most valuable asset—your people! Keep them present, happy and healthy and they will communicate better, work smarter and grow right along with your bottom line.
Reduce lost-time days by as much as 85%.
MSDs are the leading cause of absence from work—accounting for 49% of all absences and 60% of permanent work incapacity. With early intervention services utilizing the ErgoMed approach, employees return to work an average of 2.7 weeks sooner, and average lost time days are reduced by nearly 50%.
Increase retention and productivity.
In a study done by the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, back/neck pain was found to be one of the top five costliest conditions for employers — not only in medical/pharmaceutical bills, but also in productivity loss and absenteeism. Keep your employees working and keep them healthy!
Cultivate employee involvement and company pride.
A proactive approach to ergonomics will not only reduce injuries, costs, absenteeism and turnover — it will also make your employees feel appreciated, involved and proud of the company they work for.
Generate growth, innovation and profit.
With a keener eye on the causes of MSDs and an overall approach of preventive health, chronic and costly injuries can be avoided and your workforce can thrive. The problem has been identified, the question is—how are you going to get the results you want? OHS can help.
