How can Life’s Work help us?

For the last 11 years, Life’s Work Consulting has worked with both large and small companies on their musculoskeletal injury risk mitigation. We’ve helped companies in health implement safe patient handling programs to limit injuries to patients and staff members. We’ve helped construction firms assess work sites to make them safer and implemented stretching programs to assist with warming up prior to work. We’ve worked with manufacturing companies to help reduce manual materials handing and injury risk at the assembly line. Our team is trained to understand your individual problem and come up with a proposal, strategy and plan to solve it. Some of our projects last one day and others for years.

How can Life’s Work help us mitigate injury related costs?

In most companies, musculoskeletal costs whether they are medical or workers’ compensation related, may represent 30% of total costs. When analyzing the indirect costs associated with these injuries, it can be 3-7 times the direct medical costs. Our programs are designed to target this risk whenever possible. Long-term investment in prevention and injury risk mitigation is a company’s best way to impact the bottom line long-term. Oregon OSHA, NIH and many other organizations have published research on this topic. Pre and post metrics for your project are encouraged to show ROI.
