Injury Prevention – Stretch and Strengthen Strategies
We understand that there are many hazards and risks associated with both office based and manual based work environments and where possible we look to provide you with control measures that are simple and effective to implement. In many work environments it is almost impossible to eliminate all hazards and risks and therefore we have developed a stretch or strengthening program to better equip your workers with both the knowledge and practical skills to be able to implement simple stretching and strengthening techniques to help workers deal with tension associated with static, awkward or repetitive work tasks that can be performed for long durations.
So What Do We Do?
All of our services are tailor made to suit your companies and workers needs. We offer a range of consultation services that usually involves the following:
- Site view – observation of work tasks and review of any existing injury data/risk assessments,
