CENTENNIAL, CO – 02-28-2019 (PRDistribution.com) — A large-scale international beverage distribution company was suffering from ballooning workers’ compensation costs that were severely impacting the company’s bottom line. After analysis, it was learned that the largest contributor to workers’ compensation claims was simple muscle strains and sprains. Those preventable musculoskeletal injuries made up more than 46% of the claims costing $5.6 million in one year alone.
After success with an initial pilot program, the Briotix Health comprehensive musculoskeletal wellness program was rolled out throughout the company and included Industrial Sports Medicine, Ergonomics, and Health Education. Over the course of four years, the company saved more than $3.35 million in reduced musculoskeletal workers’ compensation costs with an ROI of 2.08 to 1. “Briotix Health’s systematic approach reduced injury risks and improved the performance of the workforce,” said one company safety manager. “As a supervisor, I find this service very helpful.
