Preventing Onsite Musculoskeletal Injury | Presented by Mountain Land Physical Therapy

August 8, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

This course will help you understand the factors that may be causing musculoskeletal injuries on the work site. The discussion will include a range of prevention techniques and a discussion of mitigation strategies to look out for your employee’s best interest while watching your bottom line.

Healthcare costs related to musculoskeletal injuries have never been higher. As a result, any strategy that decreases the number of OSHA reportable injuries must be examined. Most employers have tried a few of these strategies. This discussion will go deeper into the “how,” the “why,” “how much will it cost,” and the true cost savings.

Course topics include:
-Stretch and Flex programs
-Body mechanics and Ergonomic training
-Post Offer Employment Testing (pre-work testing)
-Job description writing for physical jobs

Participants will come away as better consumers of upstream prevention strategies. They will have a better understanding of how to choose an appropriate custom solution tailored to their specific company. They will have a better holistic understanding of injury rates and exposure in our mid-2023 economic conditions.
