“Move 4 Life works so well for us because we are giving people an understanding of movement and not only how injuries occur, but why injuries occur. Instead of just giving them a ten step process and asking them to read it, this approach is very behaviour-driven. It’s about that individual being able to move in the safest way possible in any circumstance.”
The feedback we have had from Move 4 Life has been overwhelmingly positive. I have had guys who have been in the industry for 20 or 30 years say that they wish they’d had this information as an apprentice so that they could have made better decisions about their movement and looking after their bodies. They were able to draw immediate benefit from what they learned in the session.
"Move 4 Life is the most engaging program I’ve ever experienced and has been endorsed by all who work at KTAS. Its holistic behavioral approach is effective in behaviour change and makes a connection with all who participate. I would recommend this program to any business tackling sprain & strain injuries that finds the traditional Manual Handling programs ineffective.”
Paul Sweatman, Marketing and Distribution Manager
"BASF Construction Chemicals at Seven Hills invited Terry Wong from Move 4 Life to give a keynote address to employees as part of our Global Safety Day activities. I am pleased to report that it was a great success. Terry actively engaged our people on movement issues that were concerning them and showed theory and practical examples of how to improve our techniques for lifting, moving, sitting etc. Terry was entertaining and we will definitely be having Move 4 Life back."
