Worker Wellbeing

Ergonomics - We use our muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints to lift, carry, sit, stand, walk, move and work in a variety of ways.  We often put too much demand on our bodies, causing pain and discomfort. This could also lead to a more serious injury called musculoskeletal disorder (MSD).

Workplace Well-being:

Employees who are engaged in their work are likely to be mentally and physically healthy, passionate, and emotionally committed to their work and to their organization. As well, statistics have shown that a positive work environment results in reduced rates of absenteeism, stress levels, injuries and illnesses, while showing increased rates of morale and job satisfaction.
