Webinar | Preventing Agriculture Employee Strain & Sprain Injuries [Spanish]
September 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employee strains and sprains are the leading type of non-fatal workplace injury. Agriculture leads all industries in the number of workers’ compensation insurance claims for employee strains and sprains, as most job tasks are physically demanding, constantly changing and difficult to modify.
Despite the inherent risk, many agriculture employers have effectively reduced employee strain and sprain injury potential. This course explains strain and sprain injury causation and proven ways to prevent these types of injuries in agriculture settings.
This session covers:
- How and why strain and sprain injuries occur
- Risk factors that increase the likelihood of strains and sprains
- Effective ways to reduce employee strain and sprain injuries
