Staff | September 28, 2010

Back injuries, sprains, strains, pinched nerves, and soft-tissue injuries account for a third of total claims and two-thirds of the total cost for workers' compensation losses, according to recent estimates from the insurance industry. The Soft Tissue Injury Prevention Program, co-developed by AGC of America and Zurich, focuses on the cause, reduction and prevention of soft-tissue injuries. The program includes a trainer's manual with instructional PowerPoint CD, participant guides and a videotape. For more information, contact the AGC.
