Are you tired of hearing the same messages repeated in your union, association, and OSHA meetings? Looking for new insights on how to reduce injuries and create safer work environments?
The team at BHMI are experts and leaders in injury prevention and joint health. Over the past 20 years, BHMI has presented to associations, conventions, insurance groups, and corporations of all sizes. We have presented for OSHA, Federal Aviation Association, American Trucking Association, and much more.
Audiences embrace our message of finding real solutions for employees, and how and why a body can break down without proper tools for injury prevention. Guests walk away with new tools to take back to their safety department, and a better understanding of injury prevention.
Appropriately done, stretching can prepare muscles and reduce fatigue. Stretching reduces muscle soreness, tension, and reduces the risk of injury.
Here are other benefits employees receive by a regular stretching program:
- increases blood flow to muscles
- create synovial fluid (our body’s lubrication for joints)
- lengthens muscles
- decreases muscles tightness
- improve muscular balance and posture
- help with coordination which can reduce the risk of trips and falls.
At BHMI, we understand the joints and muscles used for specific daily tasks. We also know that some employees are coming to work with a limited range of motion and discomforts. Creating task-specific stretching programs and individual stretching programs can increase embracement and participation rate for stretching programs.
