Strategies to Reduce Back Injuries

MSA teams up with other safety professionals to study vibration: Vibration in the Workplace

In 2009, the Motor Safety Association developed a two year strategic plan to influence the future state of back injuries in our membership. Last year back injuries accounted for 23% of our injury costs; which represents a tremendous opportunity to both reduce injuries and influence future premium rates.

Our ergonomics program is a systematic process that starts with a needs assessment. An ergonomics needs assessment includes the following resources:

  • Written injury logs
  • WCB claims
  • Absenteeism rates
  • Turnover
