“ALMC has seen a 30% decrease in sprain & strain injuries in the first year of the Move 4 Life program being implemented (2012). This trend is continuing in 2013, and we have seen a greater percentage reduction in number of injuries that resulted from lifting and handling.
The Coaching is a critical part of the implementation that really embeds the principles into the workplace.
We chose to use Move 4 Life Trainers for 3 reasons… their experience, the credibility they have with our employees and for consistency across the country.
At all the facilities the training has been very well received. A number of employees at each site have stated it was one of the best training sessions that they have attended. The employees find it very practical and simple principles that can be applied.”
“The Train-the-Trainer element of the course will fit best with us – training at BVSC can be hard to deliver and organise due to the diversity of our workforce. The Move 4 Life program will offer us a little more flexibility and the chance to do the training in the workplace or on the job rather than in a classroom away from the worksite.
Secondly it has enabled us to up skill our workforce by providing opportunities for the selected staff to train their peers – this helps develop confidence, leadership and teamwork.
Another aspect is that once delivered there are opportunities for ongoing coaching in the workplace to ensure the skills passed on are kept in people’s minds”.
