The Rising Concern (and costs) of Workplace Injuries:
Workplace injuries can have severe consequences for both employees and businesses. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were approximately 2.6 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses reported by private industry employers in 2021 alone. These incidents can lead to decreased productivity, increased healthcare costs, and potential legal ramifications for companies. Pinnacle Staffing Group recognizes the need for proactive measures to mitigate these risks and prioritize the well-being of our employees.

 

How Stretching and Flexing Can Provide Benefits:
Stretching and flexing exercises before work have proven to be effective in reducing the risk of employee injuries. Here are some key benefits:

  1. Injury Prevention: Stretching and flexing helps to warm up the muscles, increase flexibility, and enhance blood flow, reducing the likelihood of strains, sprains, and muscle tears. Employer-led and employee supported participation in pre-shift stretching programs can lead to a reduction in workplace injuries.
  2. Better Performance: By loosening up the muscles and joints, stretching improves overall physical performance and range of motion. This helps to boost morale and productivity and helps to reduce the risk of work-related accidents and injuries caused by limited mobility.
  3. Stress Relief: Stretching and flexing provides an opportunity for employees to release tension and stress, helping to create a positive and present mindset. Pinnacle Staffing Group understands the importance of a healthy work environment that promotes employee well-being and satisfaction.
