Our goal is to ensure your team members are physically ready for work, reduce injury risk, and promote a healthy and safe team culture.
Long periods of sitting can cause a strain on some muscles, while causing weakness in others. Sitting can also cause muscle tension, stiffness, strain in the neck, arms, wrists, hands, back and legs. We are not designed to stay in one position all day. Ideally we should stretch every hour.
Workplace stretching will help protect your neck and back. It will also help prevent:
– Repetitive Strain injury
– Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
– Eye Strain
Musculoskeletal Disorders are expensive and common, and cost companies an average of $50 Billion a year. It is much less costly to keep team members healthy, as opposed to paying workers compensation and medical bills, or hiring temporary staff, and eventually having to train new team members.
Take deep breaths as this will supply blood and oxygen to the muscles, re-energizing and relaxing the muscles and brain.
Pro-active prevention is better than re-active treatment.
