Preventing Work-Related Injuries:  Protecting Your Work Athletes

In your industry, your employees are like athletes. The physical demands of their job require peak condition to be productive and avoid injury.  Unfortunately, your industrial athletes don’t always have the time or resources to stay in peak condition. Recently HR leaders from major corporations have recognized the importance of physical fitness for their employees, and programs to minimize risk when it comes to their safety in highly complex work environments.

Since injured employees negatively impact your bottom line, we’ve created a comprehensive program to help prevent injuries from ever happening at your worksite. Our onsite athletic trainers work closely with your employees to teach proactive ways to avoid injuries. Instead of being reactive with your health care services after an injury occurs, you can potentially avoid the injury altogether by taking advantage of this program.

What Our Clients Are Saying

There is a night-and-day difference between the Harness Industrial Athlete Program compared to other similar suppliers that I have used in the past. The priority switched from injury treatment to prevention. At the FC Cincinnati stadium job site, Brandon routinely worked outside of his job description to bring potential safety issues to our attention. He actively engaged our employees to correct their ergonomic positioning, so they weren’t sore at the end of the day. And besides saving money from reduced workplace injuries, it was invaluable to show our workers a competent health representative that’s there for them, which was without a doubt our end goal.

A Trainer for the Industrial Athlete

It’s early morning as professional athletic trainer, Brandon Sipes, gathers his team together on the field at the new FC Cincinnati soccer stadium. He delivers his Wellness Talk, a regular lesson in proper nutrition, mental health, or some other best practice to keep his athletes in top shape, before running them through their daily stretch-and-flex exercises to prepare their muscles for the day’s tasks. As they begin their endeavors, Brandon works closely with each team member to monitor their movements and make ergonomic corrections where possible. While he’s fully capable of performing first aid in the event of an injury, his main concern is to avoid injuries altogether. While it may sound like Brandon’s team is composed of professional soccer players, it’s actually the “industrial athletes” of Turner Construction charged with the buildout of Cincinnati’s new soccer stadium.
