Why invest in Ergonomic Solutions for your Business?

The Problem

-Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) and Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) are preventable injuries in the workplace and are most often caused by poor posture, poor workplace setup and poor work habits (ie. Poor ERGONOMICS). These preventable injuries are costly to employers and can decrease employee morale in the workplace.

- 2. 3 million Canadian Adults  (1/10 Canadians) annually experience a musculoskeletal disorder serious enough to limit their normal activities; the majority of these injuries are work-related. Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, 2018.

-67% of work related injuries are repetitive strains, often caused by poor ergonomics and repetitive movements. WorkSafe BC 2020 report

-Most injuries do not occur because of the layout of the workstation, but because of postures and positions employees put themselves in while performing their job.

-Trends show that it is becoming more difficult to retain employees as they are reporting higher levels of stress, lower motivation and less work-life balance; employee turnover is costly for businesses.
