What is back-safety consulting?

We speak in-house to your employees.
We teach them:

  • how to best perform their duties without injuring their backs and necks
  • how to set up their work stations to prevent back and neck injury
  • efficiency without injury

Why use a back-safety consultant?

  • Lower back problems cause employees to miss 93 MILLION workdays a year
  • States pay SEVERAL BILLION dollars in workman's comp benefits annually
  • Back and neck pain is frequently the leading cause of workman's comp claims
  • 5 BILLION in health care costs result from back pain EVERY YEAR in the United States
  • Most low back injuries are not caused by one incident, but rather from an aggregate of constant, small weight-bearing tasks performed incorrectly

Does back-safety consulting save money?

  • "For every dollar spent on wellness programs by employers, medical costs were reduced by about $3.27 and absenteeism costs reduced about $2.73..."(Chicago Sun-Times, Aug. 2011)
  • Wellness programs provide between $3-$6 return on investment for every dollar spent (Chicago Sun-Times, Aug. 2011).
  • A study performed in the airline industry showed the cost of back related injuries for employees attending a back strengthening group was only $206 per participant, compared to $4,883 per non-participant.
  • Another study demonstrated a decrease in sick leave due to musculoskeletal problems, such as back pain, from 5.3% to 3.1% and a decrease in employee turnover from 30.1% to 7.6%, after the employees attended an ergonomics talk.
