Office Ergonomic Training

The problem:
Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs), such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tendonitis, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, and others, cost North American companies over $20 billion a year! Just one Carpal Tunnel 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. And more recently, prolonged sitting has come to the forefront as a major contributing factor in the onset of injury and illness!

The solution:
The Sittingsafe® Office Ergonomic Training 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.
