According to the U.S. Department of Labor, nearly 40 percent of all injuries with days away from work are due to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) including sprains, strains, and tears. It is important for management to understand that simple MSDs can lead to expensive out-of-work injuries that cost the employee and company.

In the session, Tony will discuss:

  • Risk factors of common musculoskeletal disorders
  • Economic costs of sprains, strains, and tears
  • How to create a game plan to drive for an injury-free environment
