Environmental and Behavioural Influences of Musculoskeletal Injury in the Utilities Sector

Utilities companies and the sector itself, are committed to reducing musculoskeletal injury rates and dorsaVi has assisted many of these companies to achieve this objective.

dorsaVi has completed over thirty projects in the Utilities Sector, with our clients consisting of Water, Energy and Renewable Utilities providers. Projects have ranged from baseline assessments of injury risk to comparative assessments of engineering or work practice changes. Our expert team have analysed literally hundreds of hours of sensor data and video footage from the field and this has provided us with a deeper understanding of the issues that workers in this industry sector face and the influences driving musculoskeletal injury rates.

Whilst it is well known that roles within the Utilities sector involve physically demanding work that can cause musculoskeletal injury and that environmental and behavioral factors that can increase the level of risk, it is sometimes difficult to pin point what these are. Luckily, dorsaVi can not only help you understand how these factors can impact on the risk to your employees, but we can also help you reduce these risks through use of our wearable sensor technology.
