Achieve Health and Safety Excellence With Total Musculoskeletal Health
To make a significant impact on the musculoskeletal health of your organization, you’ll need a proven and established framework to draw from. I would submit for your consideration that a “Total Musculoskeletal Health” program could be a perfect fit for you.
Sit-Stand Workstations and Low Back Discomfort
Study summary: In a sedentary population, changing posture may reduce the chance of developing low back pain. The literature lacks studies on specific populations such as those who have pre-existing low back pain and also does not adequately address the dosage of sit-stand time required to help reduce pain.
Recommended Ergonomic Assessment Tools
Applying a scientific, evidence-based approach to your ergonomics process is important. The goal is to identify ergonomic risk factors, quantify then, and then make measurable improvements to the workplace, ensuring that jobs and tasks are within workers’ capabilities and limitations.
Workplace Athlete Health
Workplace Athlete Program for Your Warehouse

The Workplace Athlete
Repetitive strain injury is rapidly becoming a problem of epidemic proportions in today’s high technology workplace. It can take many forms and require a variety of different treatments. However, it is only with a combined, multidisciplinary approach that this problem can be prevented.
Most BBS critics are actually criticizing their own specific methodology and singular paradigm. All safety is about conditions, behaviors, and combinations of these and the issues that influence them. Ignoring a tool that can help address not only the behavioral side of safety but also identify conditions influencing them while also forming a stronger safety culture should not be abandoned because of misconceptions or flaws in one of many ways to apply it.
