Who is the Industrial Athlete™?

An Industrial Athlete™ is someone who works in a physically demanding job setting, often engaged in repetitive movements like bending, lifting and twisting thousands of times through a typical shift.

What can they do to protect themselves?

Of course, protocols like proper lifting technique, regular rest and hydration breaks and targeted check-ins with health and safety leaders are critical to Industrial Athletes™ remaining safe at work. A fully protected workforce, however, requires a daily benchmark of safety data that Industrial Athletes™ and management can look at and act upon together.

What are risks the Industrial Athlete™ faces?

For the Industrial Athlete™, the risk of ergonomic or musculoskeletal injuries is all too real, as fatigue often leads to improper or lagging operational technique. Serious workplace injuries like this can often result in lost days, or weeks, of work.

What can an organization do to protect the Industrial Athlete™?

To truly protect their Industrial Athletes™, organizations must go beyond lip service and safety signs to establishing a true and enduring culture of safety. Successfully managing an Industrial Athlete™ — like any professional athlete — means optimizing their performance based on a litany of real-world, actionable safety data specific to individual and organizational goals.

How can insurance carriers and brokers step in to protect the Industrial Athlete™?

Rather than the more traditional approach of backward-looking risk assessment tools and techniques, the SafeWork System and its millions of hours of real-world safety data can instead proactively predict problem areas and behavioral trends within an organization, effectively altering the very way employers measure, monitor, and manage their workplace injuries, or "Cost of Risk."

StrongArm Technologies exists for the betterment of Industrial Athletes™ everywhere. In all that we do, we are working towards creating safer workplaces and better futures for these under-appreciated heroes.

All products and services rendered by StrongArm Technologies are intended for the express purpose of ensuring that Industrial Athletes™ remain safe at work. While The FUSE Platform has myriad technological capabilities, including but not limited to ergonomic risk assessment, proximity detection, and geo-location, the use of these capabilities to punish or unduly monitor Industrial Athletes™ is antithetical to StrongArm’s Mission.

To that effect, all organizations working with StrongArm and implementing the SafeWork System are expressly forbidden from utilizing data for punitive measures. Any divergence from this will be considered immediate grounds for contract termination.

StrongArm will continue to innovate for safer technologies and advocate for safer working conditions to keep all Industrial Athletes™ Proud. Protected. Productive.
