Dramatically reduce injuries, while simultaneously stepping up engagement & culture!
MoveSMART® transfers high-level mental and physical tools people need to dramatically reduce injuries and to take personal control of their own safety. It’s a system for taking safety performance and culture past plateaus to a much higher level. We frequently see:
- injuries tremendously drop
- remarkable changes in individuals and companies
- resistant people turn around, become more positive about Safety
- leaders communicate better about Safety.
Each MoveSMART® intervention works on two levels:
1. High-level, breakthrough injury prevention skills. First and foremost, MoveSMART® incorporates mental and physical skillsets for significantly preventing incidence and severity of injuries (strains/sprains, slips/trips/falls or hand injuries).
Mental skillsets may include: elevating receptivity to action change and learning, directing attention, judgment in assessing actual/hidden levels of risk, decision-making, developing a mindset of personal control for own actions, cumulative and at-home thinking, self-monitoring, motivation to make small effective changes at work and at home – and more. Physical skillsets may include (depending on the specific module): greatly increased balance, force transfer to protect most vulnerable areas, usable strength, identifying & employing natural alignment eye-hand coordination, use of leverage, reductions in accumulated tension, improving range of motion, fatigue reduction, preparation and recovery – and more. We help people apply these principles, strategies and techniques to at-work “focus” tasks (where there is more risk for potential injury or cumulative trauma) as well as toward improving performance in favorite at-home activities.
2. Elevating leadership and cultural change.
It’s critical that organizational members develop default/background safety habits even when minimally supervised or observed. Then they become more receptive to change and learning, developing the confidence that personal skill improvement is readily do-able. In addition, MoveSMART® has become a common ground for organizations with multiple branches and cultures to speak the same safety language—one that is energizing, interesting and practical. For a case study on how one area within US Steel applied the MoveSMART® Instructor-Catalyst System to move from (in their report) the worst to the best safety record within their industry, see Safety Men of Steel.
