Happy New Year CFMA Albuquerque. Please join us as we kick off 2020 with a great presentation from Doug Hardy the President and Founder of Lighthouse Movement. You may not have heard the medical term musculoskeletal disorders before but we are all familiar common conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis. Movement related injuries can lead to sick days, work site injuries, lost time and medical costs, and all employees company wide are at risk. Potential claims and lost productivity are not only hard on the injured employee but also your companies bottom line. These injuries may not always be avoidable but like any potential safety hazard, with the proper attention and risk avoidance actions your company may save money and productivity this year. Join us for this timely presentation and help protect your health and your companies health with the tools and strategies Doug will discuss. This presentation has no prerequisites and is perfect for all CFMA members. 1 CPE hour under personal development is available for this event.

Learning Objectives – 1) Understand the underlying components of cause and buildup to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD’s). Identifying bad habits employees may have that can lead to MSDs. 2) Identify the short and long term financial impacts of MSD’s and their effects on overall health. On the surface there is the pain, missed work, and financial burden of the injured employee. Digging deeper there is the loss of productivity to the companies goals. One step further is the risk of medical and work comp claims. We will discuss how these injuries can snowball and what the financial impact looks like. 3) Apply strategic interventions to decrease Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD’s) and increase overall health. Not all MSDs can be avoided even with adhering to the recommended safety protocols and intervention techniques. Safety, as always, is the responsibility of everyone and we must all be conscious of our actions and the actions of others. These tools will be invaluable for all employees in order to help reduces MSDs company wide.
