    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: Success Story #1 - The Impact
    Type: Graph Slide
    Content: Includes a bar graph with 5 elements; three elements for each (pre-intervention, post-intervention, and percentage reduced) of the following: reported injuries, injury incidence rates, modified duty days, lost work days, and injury costs.

    • Reported Injuries
      • Pre-Intervention = 144
      • Post-Intervention = 99
      • Percentage Reduced = 31%
    • Injury Incidence Rates
      • Pre-Intervention = 24
      • Post-Intervention = 16.9
      • Percentage Reduced = 30%
    • Modified Duty Days
      • Pre-Intervention = 2061
      • Post-Intervention = 256
      • Percentage Reduced = 88%
    • Lost Work Days
      • Pre-Intervention = 256
      • Post-Intervention = 209
      • Percentage Reduced = 18%
    • Injury Costs ($ Thousands)
      • Pre-Intervention = $481
      • Post-Intervention = $203
      • Percentage Reduced = 58%
    Speaker Notes:

    This chart shows the impact of the Ergonomic Program implementation. There was a decrease in reported injuries, injury incidence rates, modified duty days, lost work days, and injury costs.

    By identifying patient care units with a high level of occupational risk to workers, a targeted back injury program was developed and implemented. This program integrated the concept of ergonomics into a program to redesign high risk activities.
