Backsafe®
Onsite Sprain/Strain Injury Prevention Training

The problem: 
Cumulative Microtrauma (CMT) Disorders such as back, neck, shoulder and knee injuries, cost North American companies over $20 billion a year! Just one sprain or strain injury can cost a company upwards of $60 thousand. Not to mention the personal pain and life altering effects of these types of injuries.

The cause: 
Microtrauma accumulated over time insidiously leads to fatigue, discomfort, pain, and for the unlucky, injury. What FIT has discovered is that workers have never learned how to safely conduct activities of daily living, both at work and at home.

The solution: 
The Backsafe® Injury Prevention Program is a combination of theory and practical teaching methods combined to ensure employees learn how to use their bodies safely - both at home and on-the-job! Employees get education on how to use their bodies that they should have been taught in grade school, but never were.

Backsafe® Training Workshops
  • Personalized, onsite group training
  • Customized for the job description being addressed
  • Educational, hands on, interactive
  • Delivered by healthcare professionals
  • NOT a boring video!
  • Applicable both on and off the job.
  • Proprietary teaching methods ensure employees buy-in to changing their own behavior!

Three major breakthroughs helped Backsafe ®  and Sittingsafe ®  to become the most effective injury prevention programs in North America. These discoveries transcended the sciences of ergonomics, biomechanics, and workplace stretching to include how to teach these principles to get employees to listen, embrace, and incorporate them into activities of daily living, on and off the job.

The Result:
Backsafe® graduates have learned how to do their jobs in the safest way possible. But more than that, they’ve bought into changing their own work habits. Sprain and strain injuries are dramatically reduced, your workers compensation costs go down, employee morale and productivity soars, and your bottom line grows.
