Stopping Injuries Before They Happen
What Is Employee Injury Prevention?
In addition to workplace injury treatment, Concentra offers programs and training that can help prevent employee injuries in general. Concentra physical therapists (PTs) and certified athletic trainers (ATCs) can teach employees how to improve their overall and workplace health. They can do this through exercise programs and classes on proper warm-up and stretching routines before work, the best lifting techniques, back injury prevention, and ergonomics (making the workplace more productive by reducing muscle fatigue). Doing this can also help prevent cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) with ergonomic evaluations and a functional job site analysis (ADApt) to optimize your work environment and minimize injury risk factors.
Benefits for Employees
Even when done correctly, the repetitive motions performed at work can lead to employee fatigue and injuries. Better working conditions and employee health will lead to fewer work injuries, repetitive stress injuries, and missed days from work. With the right training and environment, employees will be happier, healthier, and more productive. Concentra employee injury prevention programs can improve productivity and morale while reducing work injuries and employee absences.
What We Provide
Regular exercise helps keep your employees fit and can reduce their risk of injury. With this program, Concentra physical therapists teach your employees how exercise benefits them both on and off the job. They also teach them how to exercise safely in relation to where they are in their wellness journey.
Most work-related musculoskeletal and spinal disorders come from cumulative trauma injuries and back strain. With a warm-up and stretching program, a Concentra Athletic Health Specialist can teach your employees the right methods to prepare their bodies for physical activity and reduce the risk of injury.
Repetitive motion, improper lifting, poor posture, and lack of fitness are common causes of back injuries. Our back-injury prevention program offers employee education, educational seminars, and train-the-trainer programs that teach safe lifting techniques, wellness, and back education.
Our ergonomics program teaches you about ergonomic risk exposures and outlines recommendations to assist employees in reducing their risk of cumulative trauma disorders. We can evaluate your work site for ergonomic hazards and recommend a variety of ways to improve employee safety.
