With the massive increase of work from home labor, it's important to consider increased risk of musculoskeletal injures!
With a team of Occupational Therapists with certifications in Ergonomics, we provide high quality on site assessments with specific recommendations, training, and technical follow up as needed. We have provided Assistive Technology services statewide for the past 27 years working with all types of disability, levels of function, and in a wide variety of worksites. Also, Easterseals has been serving the disbaility community in Massachusetts for more than 75 years.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that musculoskeletal injures (MSD’s), such as carpal tunnel, tendonitis, rotator cuff injuries, and low back injuries, account for 33% of all worker injury and illness cases. This translates into hundreds of hours of lost productivity and revenue. These injuries are preventable with early detection, evaluation, and appropriate solutions. Ergonomics --- fitting a job to a person --- helps lessen muscle fatigue, increases productivity and reduces the number and severity of work-related MSDs. Need evidence that ergonomics work?
