80% of adults experience at least one episode of back pain during a lifetime. (Rubin, 2007)

Lower back pain is a growing concern, impacting employee health and organizational productivity. It is a significant public health concern that affects over half a billion people globally. Projections indicate a further rise to over 800 million prevalent cases by 2050 (Ferreira et al., 2023). This musculoskeletal condition remains the primary contributor to disability worldwide. In the workplace, a comprehensive Ergonomic Essentials Program can help combat this challenge.

The Ergonomic Essentials Program: A Proactive Approach

Our We’ve Got Your Back: Ergonomic Essentials Program is a customizable solution designed to improve employee ergonomics and reduce the risk of work-related injuries. We aim cater to your organization’s specific needs and includes three key components:

  • Tailored Wellbeing Awareness Training: Our engaging training sessions, available on-site, online, or in a hybrid format, combine theory with practical application. The content is customized based on an online assessment and your requirements, ensuring targeted education for your workforce.
  • Data-Driven Online Assessment and Report: The program commences with a self-reported employee wellbeing questionnaire. We leverage the results to generate a gap analysis report, highlighting areas for ergonomic improvement within your organization.
  • On-Site Group Ergonomic Support: Informed by the assessment findings, your requirements, and employee feedback, our team provides on-site ergonomic support for groups. This may encompass workstation assessments, recommendations for proper posture and equipment setup, and guidance on establishing healthy work habits.

Benefits of Investing in Ergonomic Support

  • Reduced Risk of MSDs: Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are a common consequence of poor ergonomics. Our program actively reduces this risk, promoting a healthier workforce.
  • Enhanced Employee Productivity and Wellbeing: Improved ergonomics translates to increased employee comfort and focus, leading to higher productivity and overall well-being.
  • A More Positive Work Environment: By prioritizing employee health and well-being, you cultivate a more positive and supportive work environment.
