The Importance of Physical Activity While At Home /blog/the-importance-of-physical-activity-while-at-home/ /blog/the-importance-of-physical-activity-while-at-home/#respond Mon, 28 Dec 2020 19:39:27 +0000 /blog/?p=7773 Continue reading ]]> While many of us have had to adapt to a new normal in terms of a daily routine, this doesn’t mean that physical activity should be pushed to the wayside. In fact, for those of you that have a physical day job, it can be extremely important to ensure that you are keeping up with physical activity while off of work or working from home.

 

For  those of us that are used to be physically active on a daily basis while on the job, having to transition to a non-active lifestyle while abiding by a stay at home order and social distancing, the transition can be difficult. In fact, it doesn’t take long for for physical activity to be the first thing to go when adapting to such a new routine. However, keeping up with physical activity, even while not working, can make going to back to work that much easier. Check out the tips below for quick and ways to stay physically active, even while at home.

  • Schedule a time each day for physical activity. This could include walking up and down stairs, going for a walk around your neighborhood, walking your pets, yoga, body weight training, etc. Anything that can get you up and moving will do!
  • Although you may not be as active as you once were, stretching should still be a part of your daily routine. Keeping your joints and muscles loose is just as important as getting in a little exercise in.
  • Eating healthy and stay hydrated. While being at home, it’s extremely easy to graze on snacks and food all day. Try incorporating healthy snacks and meals into your routine. Don’t forget to stay hydrated! Water intake will keep your body energized and ready for the day ahead.

“Take advantage of this time to love on your spouse and kids, get projects done around your house, catch up with friends via telephone, watch your favorite TV show, read a book, listen to a podcast, etc.  but, don’t forget to continue to take care of yourself!  Eat well, sleep well, and continue to keep your body moving so that you are ready to come back to work like you never missed a beat!  When you sit, you spoil and when you rest, you rust!” – Carleigh Stone, Trillium Safety Manager

“When out of work, exercise daily and stay off the couch. When you go back to work, you will be productive and less exposed to say ouch!!” – Jamie Ellis, Trillium Senior Safety Manager

This may all seem like common sense activities but when you’re home day in and day out, it can be easy to get into a not so healthy routine. Simply try to incorporate a few of these suggestions into your day to day and when the time comes to return back to work, you’ll be ready to go!

More Than 40% of U.S. Workers Suffer From This. Are You One of Them? /blog/more-than-40-of-u-s-workers-suffer-from-this-are-you-one-of-them/ /blog/more-than-40-of-u-s-workers-suffer-from-this-are-you-one-of-them/#respond Mon, 28 Dec 2020 13:42:26 +0000 /blog/?p=7460 Continue reading ]]> As if the holidays weren’t a whirlwind enough on their own, the new year always brings with it a renewed list of projects, tasks and responsibilities no matter what your line of business is. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that more than 40% of U.S. workers are sleep deprived. What’s worse? Nearly 13% of all workplace injuries in the U.S. may be attributed to fatigue. With stats like that, here’s what you need to know to stay safe in the workplace and help your colleagues do the same.

Some quick stats on the impact of workplace fatigue:

  • Workplace accidents/injuries are 30% more likely to occur on night shifts than day shifts.
  • Working 12 hour shifts? Your risk factor increases by 37% of accident or injury.
  • Fatigue accounts for an estimated loss to employers of $136 billion in health related lost productivity.
  • More than 70 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder.

So what can we do to help ensure safety in the workplace?

  • Increase headcount to lower the need for extended hours worked during a shift.
  • Whenever possible, schedule employees on a regular and predictable schedule that can help build healthy sleep patterns.
  • Evaluate the work environment for opportunities to increase alertness such as lighting, temperature and bright aesthetics.
  • Offer regularly opportunities for employees to collaborate or work with others for interaction.
  • Provide employees with education pieces on healthy sleep patterns and how to identify the symptoms of fatigue that may impact safety and performance.

15% of All Accidental Deaths Start With This /blog/15-of-all-accidental-deaths-start-with-this/ /blog/15-of-all-accidental-deaths-start-with-this/#respond Tue, 13 Oct 2020 15:03:20 +0000 /blog/?p=7472 Continue reading ]]> While it’s no shocker that motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of accidental deaths, did you know that something as simple and often times preventable as slips, trips and falls are the second leading cause of accidental death? Unless you work in a Safety or Risk Management role, you probably don’t give a lot of thought to this topic. Here’s why you should.

The good news? While one of the most frequently reporting injuries, it’s also one of the most preventable type of accident or injury that occurs in the workplace. Here’s little insight into the most frequent causes as well as some tips for prevention:

Causes:

  • Dirty, freshly waxed, wet, poor conditioned or transitioning walking surfaces
  • Uneven or irregular surfaces
  • Mounting or dismounting from equipment, vehicle, ladders or platforms
  • Weather hazards
  • Uncovered hoses, wires or cluttered walking surfaces
  • Poor lighting conditions, improperly fitting safety equipment, poor hazard signage
  • Fatigue, poor visibility, impairment due to drugs or alcohol, carelessness
  • Carrying objects improperly, distracted employees, rushed employees

Prevention Tips:

  • Good housekeeping and regular maintenance of surfaces and work environments
  • Training on safe lifting, carrying and safe fall techniques
  • Wearing proper footwear and PPE
  • Maintain all equipment to prevent leaks, spills, and drips
  • Install slip-resistant floors in high risk areas
  • Make sure all loose hoses, wires or cords are properly secured and marked

The Most Expensive Workplace Injuries /blog/the-most-expensive-workplace-injuries/ /blog/the-most-expensive-workplace-injuries/#respond Fri, 09 Oct 2020 15:02:19 +0000 /blog/?p=7515 Continue reading ]]> While workplace injuries and illnesses cost employers an estimated $170 billion every year, the costs among them vary greatly. We often hear of companies complaining about the costs of PPE and safety equipment in roles where they don’t suspect the injuries to occur or not understanding the costs of them when they do. Regardless of cost, the important factor is the wellness and safety of the employees.

Thankfully the most costly injuries aren’t typically the most common. Below are a few of the most expensive injuries per occurrence:

  • Amputations
  • Dislocations
  • Electric Shock
  • Crushes
  • Traumas

While some of those injuries have an individual cost over $100k, even inflammation can cost an employer nearly $25k. The key to injury and illness prevention is regular risk assessments followed by implementing any necessary changes. For best results in addition to your risk and safety teams, include employees from each role in your assessments and planning. Those individuals who are exposed to the environment and job duties on a daily basis can give great insight into things that may be easily overlooked by others who aren’t performing the essential duties for extended periods of time.

The Importance Of Maintaining A Routine /blog/the-importance-of-maintaining-a-routine/ /blog/the-importance-of-maintaining-a-routine/#respond Mon, 05 Oct 2020 14:57:28 +0000 /blog/?p=7727 Continue reading ]]> The COVID-19 pandemic has uprooted our lives in so many different ways. While much of that is beyond your control, how you respond to those changes and the habits that you maintain have a direct impact on how quickly you rebound from this ordeal.

 

There are countless benefits to maintaining a routine, even when times are good. Healthy routines are proven to benefit your mental health, time management, finances, efficiencies and boost your confidence. This is especially crucial when many areas of your life may feel out of control and can make re-entry to the workforce following Stay at Home orders easier. Here are some quick tips!

  • Maintain a consistent schedule- It’s hard to feel and perform at your best when you are tired. Sticking to a consistent sleep and waking schedule keeps your mind and body tuned in to being productive and alert.
  • Remain active- Does your typical job require a lot of physical activity? Can you imagine how difficult it would be to return to work after not performing those duties for weeks or months? That can quickly result in painful injuries. Even with gyms closed, there are many free online fitness resources and even simple work around your home and regular walks can bring great benefits for those without medical restrictions.
  • Self care- It’s easy to fall into a sluggish feeling if you aren’t keeping with your daily care routine. Whether you are working from home or out of work currently, sticking your usual morning routine of getting dressed and around for the day can quickly gear your mindset up.
  • Stay connected- Find new ways to communicate with friends and family. Some popular options include Zoom meetings, hand written letters and a simple phone call.
