Think Twice. Lift Once: Spine and notably low back related injury accounts for approximately 25% of work place injury and WCB costs in Canada. Lifts and positions are only two common examples of preventable causes.
When incidents do occur on the job, early return to work in less than 1 week is noted by approximately 70% of injured workers attending their family Chiropractor. This RTW (return to work) demonstrates recovery of health and function, and demonstrates opportunity for lower employer assessment and related HR costs. Injured workers can contact their family Chiropractic immediately when injured on the job.
Company safety officers can learn more about prevention and early treatment for return to work by contacting the BCCA about Think Twice Lift Once.
