Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) affect the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, ligaments and tendons and work-related MSDs account for 32% of all cases requiring days from work in the private sector in 2016. Roughly 1$ of every $3 in workers compensation costs are attributed to MSDs, so eliminating the factors that contribute or cause MSD is cost effective for your business.

Identifying Potential Hazards

Understand warning signs such as:

  • employees exerting excessive force
  • performing the same or similar tasks repetitively
  • working in awkward positions or being in the same posture for long periods of time
  • localized pressure into the body part
  • tasks with high vibration

Note: Cold temperatures combined with the above risk factors also increase the risk of MSDs to develop.

Controlling The Hazard

  • Attempt to Eliminate the hazard entirely
  • If that is not possible, attempt to Replace the hazard.
  • If that cannot be done, Engineer out the hazard by providing a source to isolate the hazard from the employee.
  • If you cannot engineer out the hazard, provide administrative controls.
  • If all of the above are not possible, you must provide PPE to protect the worker from the hazard.

Calculate your ROI:

The cost of a single Workers Compensation Claim typically justifies safety investment. You can use this simple calculation to estimate your potential savings or analyze the impact after investing in intervention.

Injury Cost (Pre-Intervention) - Injury Cost (Post-Intervention) - Cost of Intervention = Total Costs of Savings
