Industrial Athlete Program

Prevent work-related injuries, lower health care costs and protect your most valuable asset – your employees.

Absenteeism and billions of dollars are lost each year in preventable workplace injuries. These are some of the top concerns facing employers. Whether you’re in construction, manufacturing, utilities or the business of protecting communities, you have the power to improve the safety and well-being of your workforce.

The Harness Industrial Athlete Program helps organizations like yours lower reportable injuries, reduce worker’s compensation claims, promote employee health and increase injury prevention and safety. Show your workers that you care about their well-being by placing proven athletic training in the workplace.

Choose the program that helps your employees perform at the top of their game.

Industrial employees are just like athletes. They use their physical and mental talents to perform their job. It’s a role that requires skill, strength, flexibility, coordination, and endurance — just like an athlete. If your employees get sick or injured, it can have a ripple effect that impacts your bottom line, your culture and employee retention. You can help prevent work-related injuries and improve your work athletes’ mental and physical resilience so they can stay in the game for themselves, their families, and their careers.

Comprehensive program helps prevent reportable injuries and shows your commitment to worker safety.

A reportable injury can have far-reaching effects on an organization, whether it’s because of higher premiums or, worse yet, employees whose injuries only get worse because they didn’t report them in the first place. That’s where we come in: by providing a safe work environment that helps prevent reportable injuries, improve morale and positively impact productivity. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, workplaces that establish safety programs and health management systems can reduce their injury and illness costs by 20 to 40%.1 Our Industrial Athlete Program will provide an on-site industrial athletic trainer (AT) to teach your employees practical ways to prevent injuries.

There are billions of reasons to protect your industrial athletes

According to recent reports, employers spend billions of dollars on disabling and often preventable work injuries. Often safety-related costs are the difference between reporting a business profit or a loss.

  • $1 billion - Serious, nonfatal workplace injuries are costing U.S. businesses more than $1 billion each week.
  • $6 billion - Disabling workplace injuries cost close to $6 billion. Three of the top 10 injury causes – handling objects, being in awkward positions and repetitive motions involving microtasks – can be addressed by implementing an industrial athlete program.*
  • $171 billion - According to the National Safety Council, in 2019, preventable work injuries cost both employers and workers $171 billion in incurred expenses and income not received.
  • Athletic trainers look after their well-being on the site and off. They also encourage regular checkups and promote other healthy habits. It can pay off in lower health costs by the billions.
