Workshop Details

In this presentation, Safety professionals will learn how to effectively identify work place risk utilizing the unique and proven injury prevention method, the BEEA+ paradigm. The BEEA+ concept is based on the premise that every workplace injury ultimately results from the inconsistency or breakdown in one or more following areas: Bio-Physics, Ergonomics, Education and Awareness. Attendees will develop an understanding of how these components integrate and why they must all be part of a company’s overall risk reduction strategy. Exposure to solutions for risk reduction and injury prevention will also be part of this presentation.

An emphasis of the solutions discussion will be on the bio-physics component of BEEA+ paradigm. The presenter will discuss the concept of bio-physics as it relates to repetitive micro-trauma and overuse injuries especially within an aging population, and how bio-physics inter-relates with the remainder of the BEEA+ components.

When left unchecked employees’ aches and pains, work related or not, can ultimately become work injuries and costly claims. What if employees could develop “early symptom recognition” such that they could recognize the signs of common but potentially debilitating muscular-skeletal conditions? What if they had access to a convenient solution for these symptoms so they could be addressed before they reached “injury” status? Attendees will learn the answers to these questions and more after attending our presentation!
