    Title: Success Story #2 - The Impact
    Type: Graph Slide
    Content: Includes a bar graph with 3 elements; three elements for each (pre-intervention, post-intervention, and percentage reduced) of the following: lifting related injuries, injury incidence rates, and injury costs.

    • Lifting Related Injuries
      • Pre-Intervention = 141
      • Post-Intervention = 68
      • Percentage Reduced = 51.8%
    • Injury Incidence Rates
      • Pre-Intervention = 15.77
      • Post-Intervention = 7.93
      • Percentage Reduced = 49.7%
    • Injury Costs ($ Thousands)
      • Pre-Intervention = $159
      • Post-Intervention = $62
      • Percentage Reduced = 61.2%
    Speaker Notes:

    As a result of the prevention program, there was a reduction in lifting related injuries, injury incidence rates, and injury costs as shown in the chart shown.

    The prevention program helped to provide quality medical care to injured workers and provide modified duty programs that allowed workers to return to work as quickly and safely as possible.
