Ergonomics Program Reduces Workplace Injuries and Improves Employee Health


Standish, MI, February 15, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Delivering Excellence newsletter reported St. Luke’s Regional Medical Center with 1,300 employees, implemented the IMPACC—the Industrial Athlete “WorkSmart” Ergonomics Program in 1998. Since implementation, St. Luke’s has reported several improvements in employee health, including an 85 percent reduction of OSHA recordable MSD injuries to the lower back and shoulders for those workers involved in patient care since 2001.

Eighty-six percent of full-time US workers are now overweight or obese and have had recurring physical pain in their back, neck, knee, or leg in the last 12 months. They also have at least one other chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, high blood cholesterol, asthma, or depression which leads to an estimated lost productivity cost of $153 billion annually. These employees miss an estimated 450 million additional days of work each year compared to healthy workers with a BMI less than 25, without a chronic disease and without physical complaints of pain.
