Preventing the #1 Loss Source for Workers' Compensation Claims: Strains/Sprains

Strains and sprains (also known as musculoskeletal disorders—MSDs) are the single largest contributor to workers' compensation claims from both a frequency and severity (i.e., cost) standpoint. Approximately 25% of all claims relate to MSDs.

This overview webinar will discuss the major risk factors associated with MSDs, including occupational factors related to workplace ergonomic design and individual differences. Practical control measures will be discussed including basic ergonomic design improvements, wellness and stretching considerations, and recommended lifting techniques.
