Preventing Strains and Sprains

Strains and Sprains are major causes of injuries to UWF employees as well as other workers in government agencies and the private sector.

The welfare of the employees and also the cost to Workers' Compensation Insurances are both important issues to Health and Safety professionals.

Prevention of injuries involves not only the condition of the employees' work area and facilities, but also the carefulness and preparedness of the employee as the daily tasks are completed.
