What is an InjuryFree Employee Maintenance Center like for an employee?

A Q&A with Trisha Studebaker, a Belmont, MI employee at the Kimberly-Clark Mill who uses InjuryFree’s innovative new Employee Maintenance Center.

InjuryFree has been pioneering preventative approaches to health inside the workplace with their Employee Maintenance Centers. The centers provide an on-site place where employees can go to strategically strengthen supporting muscles so that they don’t experience pain on the job. These programs are aimed at preventing costly workers comp claims for employers, but as Trisha says, the EMCs can have an even greater effect on employee well-being.

Q: How long have you been participating:

  • A: Since July 26, 2011, so more than a year and three months.

  • A: I can stand longer with no back pain.

Q: Is there an experience you can share illustrating how the EMC has helped you?

Q: What would you want to tell a prospective boss about your experience using the EMC?

  • A: That it is the best thing an employer can do for their employees. It improves your health.
