IMPACC Neck-Arm School
Now with Animations
IMPACC, a group of physical therapists specializing in workplace injury prevention consulting to industry, has evolved since 1984 a unique format of "Neck-Arm CTD School." This is a program of teaching managers and supervisors how to reduce CTD injuries, claims, and costs... plus teaching workers how to protect themselves from musculo-skeletal fatigue and wear damage.
This program has been presented at thousands of workplaces across a wide variety of settings. Outcomes have been consistently favorable, with client companies reporting approximately 70 percent reductions in lost work days attributable to CTD claims in the 12 to 24-month period following implementation of the program. Several companies with runaway epidemics of CTD have seen radical improvements in their CTD-related problems, including 90-plus percent reductions in lost work days accompanied by significant improvements in productivity.
Our program allows you to facilitate changes in work design, worker behaviors, policies, procedures, and-or attitudes in ways that contribute to significant reductions in CTD claims and lost days. We describe the program as addressing a wide scope of issues including ergonomics, preventive stretching, case management, restricted duty programs, job task rotation, employee relations and policy empowerment.
The Neck-Arm CTD School addresses injuries, claims, and costs as three separate issues. Risk factors and prevention strategies for each of these three issues are identified and discussed in detail. Manager and supervisor training is a four-hour comprehensive education process to not only create a knowledge base for CTD management, but to also align attitudes and commitment toward more cost-effective company policies. This is followed by a two-hour employee "WorkSmart" program that emphasizes fatigue-avoidance tactics. The newest version includes a condensed one-hour employee program for review or utilization as needed by your client.
The Neck-Arm CTD School offers several unique approaches based on key challenges to convention: (1) ergonomics by itself is not the answer; (2) employee risk behaviors must be addressed; (3) management attitudes and hostile approaches to CTD must be corrected; (4) CTD is not a mainly "repetitive motion injury" but is, instead, more the result of static posture; (5) nutrient pathway is a vital issue of CTD cause and prevention; (6) CTD is likely as much the result of proximal stresses, especially mechanical thoracic outlet compression, as are distal stresses more local to the wrist and hand; (7) fatigue avoidance is key to CTD prevention, especially when talking to employees; (8) job task rotation, seating issues, and properly-applied stretching programs are critically important prevention strategies, especially where ergonomic corrections are not available or affordable.
The program then goes beyond prevention to teach companies how to reduce related CTD costs through early reporting of discomfort by employees, building relationships with the medical community, positive claims response and management, and developing a restricted duty program.
