Safety programs provide tremendous value for organizations, serving to prevent injuries and improve morale and productivity throughout the workforce.

But a safety program from Fit For Work delivers even greater value by being turnkey in nature, which allows it to blend with your existing processes, people, and environments in a way that best meets the needs of each and every employee.

Here are some of the main ways a safety program from Fit For Work can work within your organization to boost safety and effectiveness at every level.

Helping meet KPIs

Key performance indicators (KPIs) are essential to any successful organization. In order to meet your goals, you first need to establish what they are and define how success will be measured against them. Maybe you’re striving for a 50% reduction in workplace injuries. Or perhaps driving down costs related to those injuries is a key focus. Whatever your goals may be, nailing them down and determining how to achieve them is a necessary process – a process Fit For Work can help lead.

First, consider what is important to whom and how you are being most closely assessed by your leadership. Can a safety program led by onsite Early Intervention help you reach your KPIs? If so, you should have sufficient justification to get buy-in from leadership to implement a program that will benefit the business as a whole.


The reach of an effective safety program goes well beyond mitigating risks and reducing injuries. Doing so also sends a loud and clear message to your workforce that, “my employer cares about me.” By opening a free outlet for employees to access expert advice, care, self-care, and continued coaching, you foster increased morale and loyalty in the long term.

Fit For Work cooperates with onsite occupational health nurses (OHNs) and others in the healthcare department to ensure the whole person is addressed in each employee’s case. The two parties share relevant information pertaining past injuries and current working conditions to ensure the best outcome for the worker.

Partnering with safety

Fit For Work partners with your internal safety leaders to elevate the eyes and ears in your facilities and to shed light on any ergonomic concerns that may exist. By using your most experienced workers, we can gain insight into best practices for work tasks in a third-party manner.

Collaborative and on-demand ergonomic support also includes safety/ergonomic training presentations, monitoring KPIs for safety, and assisting in the creation and implementation of any additional ergonomic or safety programs.

Partnering with human resources

Your organization’s human resources department is the internal team closest to the physical and emotional heart of your workforce. By partnering closely with them, we are able to aid in increasing morale across the board while collaborating with and for health affairs.

We are also here to assist in trainings for office wellness to help foster a more comfortable, enjoyable, and productive working environment for every employee.

Partnering with operations

The operations team also has a large say in the day-to-day systems and processes that can most impact safety and the success of the business. A safety program in conjunction with operations can aid in meeting KPIs for reporting to leadership while working to provide justification of any new systems or processes related to ergonomics.

In serving as an onsite liaison to the plant floor, unfiltered information becomes available to us that can then be shared with operations to help provide insight into what steps can and should be taken to increase production.
