Sittingsafe® is a new generation of job-specific, on-site
ergonomics training. Designed to reduce office-based injuries
such as repetitive stress injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome,
Sittingsafe is geared to those who work with computers or
perform other job activities while in a seated position.
The goal of the program is to teach employees how to control
their environment using their existing furniture and equipment
to prevent painful and costly repetitive stress injuries.
We get the participants involved via the SITTINGSAFE practical
module that ensures the employee can adjust their own
workstation to be ergonomically correct. This practical module
is supported by our state of the art SITTINGSAFE video and
The SITTINGSAFE Ergonomics training program also includes the
SITTINGSAFE 3-minute stretching routine aimed at reducing
stress from repetitive activities.
Cumulative Trauma Disorders are a result of continuous stress on
the body. The key to preventing these costly injuries is to
reduce the amount of stress incurred on a daily basis by
properly adapting the environment to be more user-friendly,
correcting improper biomechanics and through a proper stretching
routine, rid the body of accumulated stress.

Cumulative Trauma Disorders such as back injuries and repetitive
stress injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are reaching
epidemic proportions. The reason: workers have never been
correctly taught on how to do their specific jobs correctly. Our
combination of theory and practical teaching methods ensure they
learn how to use their bodies safely - both at home and
