The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons estimates repetitive motion injuries cost US employers more than $27 billion annually for medical and lost salary costs. One risk is a less physically fit entry level work force. This is combined with the increasing age of the working population.
A company’s problematic workers compensation environment is often a complex set of economic, political, medical and legal issues. Research suggests that 90% of injured workers recover after 12 weeks. The remaining 10% account for 80% of costs.
Safe work is often a choice. Safe choices require education. Unsafe behaviors can be the result of communication deficits, negative attitudes, poor physical condition, stress, and lack of supervision.
Statistics indicate that people, not workplace conditions, cause 80% of all work related injuries. Injuries and Job Satisfaction are related. Modified duty is a vital cost control element.
