A heavy manufacturing company was suffering from a high work-related musculoskeletal injury rate over the course of four yeas with ergonomic injuries representing 35% of their lost workdays. The out-of-work time and workers' compensation costs were impacting employee morale and the company's bottom line.
After evaluating different options, the company decided to implement the comprehensive Briotix Health Industrial Sports Medicine™ solution to address their growing problem. Briotix Health designed a customized program for the company which included a four-part approach to addressing team members musculoskeletal injuries – Prevention, Intervention, Engagement, and Solutions.
In the first year of the program, the company reduced the ergonomic lost-time injuries by 100%. In year two, the company maintained that zero injury rate for a cost savings of $524,109.
“Briotix Health’s comprehensive approach reduced injury rates and improved the performance of the workforce,” said one company safety manager. “Employee morale improved, and our employees really bought into achieving our zero-injury rate. The program was and continues to be a huge success in our plant.”
