Countermeasures are a Key Element in the Prevention of Musculoskeletal Injuries.
To prevent costly soft-tissue injuries from occurring, employers and employees must embrace and engage in effective countermeasures. Accurate Ergonomics training programs teach every employee why and how to warm-up and stretch, as a method to control risk, offset physical and mental stress, and prevent painful, costly Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs).

More About Stretching & Countermeasures
Work demand and worker capacity are located at opposite ends of the scale. When demand and capacity are balanced, so are safe behaviors and everything works efficiently. Goods are produced, services are provided and tasks are performed with minimal fatigue, discomfort and injuries. When demand increases and/or capacity decreases, efficiency and productivity go down and employees are at an increased risk of Injury or Illness.
Maintaining a balance through effective countermeasures is part of AE's musculoskeletal injury prevention System. Flexibility, core strength and balance need to be maintained to prevent injuries. Stretching programs have been around for a long time, but many companies have had a difficult time getting one started. Some organizations have tried stretching and have seen their programs wane in enthusiasm, or completely disappear over time.
AE has helped thousands of employers successfully implement and sustain SAFE Stretch and Countermeasure Programs, from manufacturing to hotels, office environments, communication centers, agriculture and more.
