Atlas Ergonomics and Ege WorkSmart Solutions announced that Atlas will offer EWSS Stretch It Out! product line to its client base, which includes hundreds of employers. Stretch It Out! is a structured program designed to reduce musculoskeletal disorders and lower worker’s compensation costs.
By increasing blood flow to targeted muscle groups, the program is designed to help reduce injuries from common workplace hazards such as repetitive motions, static positions, awkward postures and forceful activities. The Stretch It Out! program can be implemented in many different workplaces, including transportation, manufacturing, warehousing, office, retail and healthcare settings.
Employers interested in implementing the Stretch It Out! program can obtain it through Atlas at a discount. Those interested in a turnkey injury-reduction program can purchase Stretch It Out! Onsite, where Atlas provides launch and onsite training support.
“Many factors inherent in MSD injuries can be positively addressed without significant engineering and/or work practice modifications,” says Scott Ege, EWSS president. “Stretch It Out! has been proven to reduce the incident of MSD-related injuries and is an effective component of any structured ergonomics and safety program.”
Atlas President Jim Landsman says Stretch It Out! allows his company to respond with confidence to its clients’ needs for a proven cost-effective stretching program. “Best of all, Atlas’ nationwide ergonomic services network makes implementing the program simple and effective,” Landsman says. “Stretch It Out is just one example of how Atlas continues to grow our comprehensive menu of injury reduction products and services.”
