Today's modern worker spends a great deal of time sitting and standing at workstations, and are exposed to serious and sometimes debilitating injuries due to the unnatural and repetitive nature of their work. One of the greatest oversights when working with computers is the limited information about how to properly position oneself. Proper positioning of the fingers, hands, arms, wrists, neck, shoulders, and back is imperative in order to prevent work related injuries. This is where the field of Ergonomics and ECI OnSite Solutions, come into play.
Whether a worker is injured on or off the job, the result is often the same—lost workdays, lost productivity, and hefty healthcare costs. Keeping workers injury - free and helping all injured employees back to work quickly, must be a priority.
It is essential for companies to have an Ergonomic Program in place and policies established to deal with Musculoskeletal Disorders, Workers' Compensation and Return-to-Work issues in the workplace. Our consulting firm specializes in Ergonomic Training, Services and Worksite Injury Prevention Services, that are designed to your company, your challenges, and your workers.
Ergonomic Consultants of Indiana (ECI) is a full service ergonomics company, offering a wide variety of ergonomic products and services. ECI was developed in response to the rising insurance costs of managing MSD's and the need for better workplace conditions. Due to the advancement of technology, physiological concerns associated with computer and equipment usage have become evident in the workplace. ECI can help you provide a safe and comfortable work environment for your work athletes and assist you in your efforts to prevent many common injuries, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Low Back Strains. The key is Early Intervention to reduce the risk of the injury progressing and developing into a loss-time recordable. At ECI, we will help you develop the most effective Early Intervention Program to combat these issues.
Our primary goal is to help you reduce Musculoskeletal Disorders and the overall costs of managing injuries. In order to accomplish this, we believe the following areas are vital to an Ergonomics Program.
1. Management Committment
2. Medical Case Management
3. Risks and Reporting
4. Evaluation and Control
OnSite Injury Management
ECI’s Injury Management Program assists employers with reducing OSHA recordable injuries, reducing work-related medical visits, and to increasing early reporting. Our Injury Prevention Model focuses on prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) and/or managing minor discomforts (sprains and strains) before they develop into recordable injuries. This model has been proven to be the most cost effective for employers. ECI’s specialists include licensed health care providers who primarily work with employees that are suffering some type of musculoskeletal sprain and/or strain, which may be a work-related or non-work related injury.
Traditional occupational medical models wait for an employee to become injured before administering treatment (reactive), thus increasing costs associated with injuries. In a more traditional model, when an employee is injured on the job, the employee leaves their work area to report to an on-site health care provider. If a health care provider is not on-site, then the employee is sent off-site to a local health care facility. Our program reduces lost-time & costs by meeting with employees at their actual job-site to encourage early reporting of discomfort before it becomes an injury. ECI is unique because we are Ergonomic Experts and additionally provide Onsite Ergonomic & Injury Prevention Services. The majority of our business is On-Site Ergonomic Services, but out of the needs and demand from our clients, we launched our Injury Management Division to assist with preventing MSD's and Injury Management when injuries do occur. Early prevention and awareness are key to reducing costs and long term injuries.
