Description
This CLV Special Report provides Managers, Union representatives, employees and HR Managers with a full understanding of back and neck injuries. The workplace can have a positive impact and play a critical role in preventing back/neck injury and, should injury occur, ensuring a successful return to the pre-injury job on a timely and effective basis. Managers and supervisors can have a role in the following areas: • Fitness and prevention programs • Ergonomics through an internal ergonomic process and using highly qualified ergonomists where indicated • Disability prevention and return to work and stay at work processes • Early on-site intervention following back/neck pain and/or injury Each of these processes has been extensively studied and proven to improve health outcomes, prevent disability and improve the financial bottom lines for organizations which have instituted them.
