Our Injury Prevention Program achieved a 30% reduction in recordable injuries within one year with hands-on interventions, health literacy training, ergonomic working practices, early injury interventions, and more. In addition, 95% of cases requiring symptom intervention did not result in recordable injuries.
Client X, an apparel company with over 1800 employees, had an increasing number of OSHA-recordable injuries among the line staff involved in production. These injuries were primarily repetitive strain and soft-tissue injuries that evolved into work comp claims because they went untreated or were not resolved by traditional treatment methodologies.
The objective of this case study is to showcase the benefits of implementing our on-site hands-on therapeutic care and wellness training programs. We will examine how our tailored approach to injury prevention and wellness training helped our client, a manufacturing company, reduce their recordable injuries and create a safer workplace for their employees.
Work Health Solutions was able to help them achieve a 30% reduction in recordable injuries within one year, and 95% of symptom intervention cases did not become recordable injuries. This was accomplished by focusing on on-site hands-on therapeutic care, wellness training and coaching, ergonomic working practices, and early injury interventions.
By investing in the programs listed above, our client was able to create a safer and more productive workplace, ultimately improving their bottom line.
In conclusion, this case study highlights the importance of implementing effective occupational health programs in manufacturing. The program implemented at the facility, the Injury Prevention Program, aimed to prevent and mitigate recordable injuries through hands-on interventions and an onsite occupational health clinic. The program significantly reduced recordable injuries at the facility and received positive feedback from employees. The program also assisted the client in workers’ compensation case evaluation and management, which helped to restore employees to productive duties as quickly as possible. Occupational health programs such as the Injury Prevention Program are crucial for maintaining the health and well-being of employees and preventing injuries, which ultimately leads to a more productive and safe working environment.
