According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are over 650,000 work-related musculoskeletal disorders that directly cost employers more than $20 billion. What could prove to be an even bigger problem is the fact that the medical expenses resulting from work-related musculoskeletal disorders are increasing more than benefit costs.
Not only do work-related musculoskeletal disorders cost businesses staggering amounts in medical expenses, but also, there are indirect costs such as absenteeism, staff replacement, and loss of productivity and quality. Such indirect costs are three to five times higher than medical expenses, costing employers about $150 billion each year.
Occupational musculoskeletal disorders are so prevalent that one in every three dollars of Workers' Compensation costs go towards employees suffering from work-related musculoskeletal disorders. The cost of each injury amounts to between $29,000 to $32,000 per year, resulting in $15 to $20 billion lost to Workers' Compensation payments alone each year.
Ergonomic redesigns and adaptations, like those provided by SitBetter, have been proven to effectively reduce the risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders, which mitigates the direct and indirect costs. Customers who shop during SitBetter's Seato de Mayo sale will have the opportunity to invest in ergonomic solutions more affordably than ever before.
