Onsite Sprain/Strain Injury Prevention Training

“…we cut sprains 40% in the first year and an additional 40% the second year, with a 60% net savings on sprain/strains.” – National Distribution Company 

Why Backsafe

The problem

Cumulative Microtrauma (CMT) injuries such as back, neck, shoulder and knee injuries cost North American companies billions of dollars each year. Just one sprain or strain injury can cost a company upwards of $100,000. 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 practically learn how to use their bodies for the first time in their lives.

Backsafe® Training Workshops

  • Personalized, on-site group training
  • Customized for your workers
  • Theory, practical, interactive
  • Delivered by Physical Therapists or Doctors of Chiropractic
  • NOT a boring video!
  • Applicable both on and off the job
  • Proprietary teaching methods ensure employees’ buy-in

Major breakthroughs on training 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 daily activities 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 improving how they feel personally. Sprain and strain injuries are dramatically reduced, your workers’ compensation costs go down, employee morale and productivity soars, and your bottom line improves.
