Sprains and Strains

Each year thousands of workers are injured in the workplace, costing employers billions of dollars in hidden costs. The most common of these injuries are sprains and strains. Most workplace injuries are caused by manual tasks, such as lifting or carrying loads, working in fixed positions, repetitive tasks, or using heavy, vibrating tools. Manual tasks, if not performed properly, are a leading cause of serious worker injuries such as sprains and strains, as well as permanent spinal damage, and often can debilitate workers who may need to take leave from work for extended periods. The second greatest cause of workplace injuries are slips, trips, and falls at ground level and from heights, such as jumping from elevated surfaces - which can cause lower limb and back strains. Workplace injuries can be costly to both employees and employers. In addition to being injured, employees may lose time from work, which could result in loss of or less income. And employers may experience lower productivity due to the need to replace the injured worker and train replacements. The course is designed to help you better understand the basics of sprains and strains so you will be more aware of what you are doing and how you are doing it, in an effort to prevent this type of injury from happening to you.
