Education Week - Using the Sports Medicine Model to Transform Your Culture of Health

Recorded on June 9, 2020

The risk of workplace injury is inextricably linked to both physical conditioning and health behavior of your employees. In the face of the rising levels of stress, inactivity, and age-related functional decline within today’s workforce population, the Total Worker Health approach advocates for stronger coordination of efforts to (1) protect employees against injuries and (2) advance their individual well-being, which are often managed completely independent from each other. This session will demonstrate how applying an integrative sports medicine model helps increase the overall impact of existing occupational health and safety initiatives. Through this approach, employees are proactively engaged in preventive exercise, job-task-specific body mechanics coaching, and personalized early intervention programs directly where work is being performed. This session will equip attendees with actionable and evidence-based strategies used to develop, implement, and maintain a comprehensive Total Worker Health program in any workplace setting; speakers will also share insight into building a sustainable support structure around these programs, giving specific consideration to gaining employee buy-in and aligning with employer cost containment objectives.
