User-friendly moving and handling solutions are critical to ensure safe working environments. With our in-bed Immedia SatinSheet System, no application or removal of the product is required.

Immedia SatinSheet System reduces friction between the user and the bed. By reducing friction, two major challenges are addressed and decreased:

  • The workload on the caregivers, that reduces work-related injuries.
  • The shear forces on the patient, that reduces the risk of pressure sores.

Online campaign to avoid common workplace injuries

WorkplaceNL is launching a campaign to teach workers about how to avoid the province’s most common workplace injury.

Musculoskeletal injuries account for nearly 70 percent of all the lost time injury claims at WorkplaceNL over the past five years, and includes sprains and inflammation caused by employees straining their muscles and joints.

Recently, WorkplaceNL launched the “How would YOU handle it?” campaign, designed to teach workers about proper lifting and handling techniques to avoid mesculoskeletal injuries.

WorkplaceNL has listed tips, tricks, and a schedule of events at www.workplacenl.ca.
