How to Prevent MSDs and Achieve Maximum Human Performance

  1. 1. HOW TO PREVENT MSDs WWW.ERGO-PLUS.COM (And Maximize Human Performance)
  2. 2. THINK PREVENTION » Why Prevention? » What are MSDs? » What causes MSDs? » Identify & Remove Risk to Prevent MSDs » The Ergonomics Plus 5-part MSD Prevention Process & Human Performance Framework Agenda
  3. 3. THINK PREVENTION Why Prevention? Good for your business. Great for your people.
  4. 4. Prevention is good for your business. THINK PREVENTION • MSDs = 28.8% of non-fatal lost-time injuries. • MSDs = Average MSD costs ~ $15,000 • MSDs = $50 billion in Worker’s Comp costs (2011)
  5. 5. Prevention is good for your business. THINK PREVENTION Cost Savings + Human Performance
  6. 6. Prevention is great for your people! THINK PREVENTION
  7. 7. THINK PREVENTION What are MSDs? (and what causes them?)
  8. 8. THINK PREVENTION Musculoskeletal Disorders or “Movement System Disorders” are injuries and disorders that affect the human body’s movement or musculoskeletal system. (i.e. muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, discs, blood vessels, etc.).
  9. 9. THINK PREVENTION Muscle Imbalance
