The majority of occupational injuries are Cumulative Trauma Disorders. This means that they started as a fatigued joint and with repetition transitioned to a work injury. Occupational injuries are costly, but Work Right provides a solution to managing these Cumulative Trauma Disorders prior to the symptoms becoming an injury!
OSHA has a clear definition of what is classified as first aid intervention. Work Right operates within this definition of first aid to provide education and consultation related to the early signs of musculoskeletal discomfort. The Work Right Injury Prevention Specialist will identify these warning signs and educate the employee on the actions they should take to prevent them from developing into a workplace injury.
By preventing these early symptoms of cumulative trauma disorders, Work Right NW can substantially reduce the cost of injuries for our corporate partners. Further, it improves the wellness of the work force resulting in increased efficiency, reduced absenteeism and improved employee morale.
