May is CIRMA's Preventing Sprains & Strains Awareness Month

Sprains and strains related injuries continue to be a leading cause of injury to municipal employees. In the past five years over 11,000 such claims were reported by CIRMA members.
      While the financial and morale loss is high, the personal costs to the injured employees is often higher, with many left in chronic pain or permanently disabled.
      The good news is that there are many effective steps that school leaders and Safety Committees can do to protect employees.
      CIRMA has made May its "Preventing Sprains and Strains Awareness" Month and is providing a number of risk management resources to help you raise awareness and implement best practices in time for summer maintenance and road repair activities.
Visit our website to download  awareness posters, new Tail Gate Topics, Employee Safety handouts, and videos--tailored for CIRMA municipal members.

      We've created a resource page on our website with posters, handouts and a video link. We added two new topics to our E-Learning Center: For more information and to start a Sprains and Strains Prevention program in your school, please contact your Risk Management Consultant.
