We’ve Got Your Back a Los Gatos Back Store Partners with ErgoAdvocate
We’ve Got Your Back is announcing a partnership with ErgoAdvocate.
Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB) August 04, 2011
We’ve Got Your Back, a Los Gatos back store-based ergonomics company, has teamed up with EgoAdvocate and will resell and support the web-based software. The ErgoAdvocate software is a great resource for companies to reduce workplace injuries with ergonomic training, assessment and reporting tools. The software features compelling multi-media content that is always available.
Gene Kay, along with a team of ergonomics e-learning and web design experts with Fortune 500 experience, developed the revolutionary software program called ErgoAdvocate. The team was eager to use its 20 combined years of health and safety experience in corporate, clinical, industrial and government work to help workers stay healthy and keep businesses from suffering lost productivity.
“More and more companies have to support virtual and home office employees with training programs,” said Rita Marcojohn of We’ve Got Your Back. “Employees are working longer hours and are “Ëœalways on,’ which increases their risk of injury due to bad ergonomics and bad work habits. This is an urgent problem for companies, particularly with the rising cost of health care.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, work-related musculoskeletal disorders now account for more than one-third of all occupational illnesses and injuries due to poor posture and excessive sitting in ill-fitting workstations. This constitutes the largest job related illness and injury problem in the U.S. today.
A survey of 28,902 randomly sampled adult workers showed that 52.7 percent of them complained of headaches, backaches, back pain or other musculoskeletal pain. The aches, pains and illnesses caused companies to lose 5.2 hours of productivity per employee. These lost hours amount to an estimated $61.2 billion of losses per year in the U.S.
ErgoAdvocate software has been deployed by Fortune 500 Finance, Defense and Health Care companies ranging in size from a few thousand to hundreds of thousands of employees. These companies are finding that web-based training tools are a cost-effective way to deliver standardized training to globally dispersed workforces.
