Injuries are a source of concern for any type of business. Injuries not only cause pain and suffering for employees, they also have direct and indirect (hidden) costs. These hidden costs are reflected in the time lost for an employee who is not available to accomplish his tasks, as well as the cost of training replacement workers and increased insurance costs.
Soft tissue damage to a worker’s body is the number one cause for worker compensation claims. It hurts not only the worker, but also hurts the company in its ability to keep their workforce safe, be competitive and profitable.
Many safety programs have been developed to protect employees from hazards on the job site, but only recently have experts promoted how important it is for workers to be properly stretched out prior to starting each workday.
Benefits of Stretch and Flex:
- Improves flexibility
- Improves the range of motion in your joints
- Improves circulation
- Relieves stress
- Injury prevention and recovery
- Improves posture and technique
- Assists in achieving better coordination, muscle control and proper technique in work tasks
There also may be a psychological benefit at work in a stretching program. Company managers and workers together in a space doing a common activity can create bonding and increase workplace moral. This semi-social grouping or bonding in the workplace creates the perception of caring and support felt by employees from management.
