Did you know that 9 out of 10 people suffer from pain linked to poor posture at work?
It’s true and it’s unfortunate because such pain is preventable.
Corporate Health & Ergonomics
Corporate health & ergonomics are gaining traction with more businesses as employers realise that the prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) is hurting their bottom line.
Fortunately, the solution can be simple. For instance, a 20-minute workstation assessment can be the stepping stone to alleviate and even prevent WMSDs in your workplace!
Help your employees work pain-free today and be rewarded with many benefits including increased productivity and reduced medical claims.
It’s a win-win!
It really works!
These companies have reported successful results after implementing corporate health & ergonomic solutions.
For instance, Siemens VDO Automotive managed to decrease strain injuries from 43% to 0%. This has saved them 20,000 hours per year in time lost previously due to pain, doctor visits and time off!
5 Proven Benefits of Investing in Corporate Health & Ergonomics
Ergonomic risk factors such as awkward postures, excessive force, and high task repetition, can make a job more frustrating and difficult to perform.
By removing these barriers to productivity, the job tasks can be performed more efficiently.
Employees who work in a safe environment feel valued.
As such, they are also motivated to put in their best efforts to produce quality work/product.
Simply put, the cost of prevention measures pales in comparison to the staggering human and financial cost of WMSDs.
By investing in corporate health & ergonomics, you can reduce direct costs such as medical claims and legal expenses. Other indirect costs include workplace disruption, training for new employees and increased insurance premiums.
One sure thing about WMSDs is that they hurt, and this pain leads to an escalating number of sick days.
Absenteeism and turnover can be decreased when employees do not experience discomfort and fatigue during their workday.
There are many factors that go into making employees happy, but chief among them is feeling like their company cares about their health and safety.
In this way, investing in corporate health & ergonomics can increase both morale, job satisfaction and loyalty.
