Environmental and Behavioural Influences of Musculoskeletal Injury in the Utilities Sector

Reducing musculoskeletal injury rates continue to be a key initiative across many industries and dorsaVi has worked with many companies to assist them to achieve this objective.

The Utilities sector is an industry where this has been a focus for many years and dorsaVi has significant experience in this area, completing over thirty projects for Water, Energy and Renewable Utilities providers. Projects have ranged from baseline assessments of injury risk to comparative assessments of engineering or work practice changes. Our expert team have analysed literally hundreds of hours of sensor data and video footage from the field and this has provided us with a deeper understanding of the issues that workers in this industry sector face and the influences driving musculoskeletal injury rates.

Whilst it is well known that roles within the Utilities sector involve physically demanding work that can cause musculoskeletal injury and that environmental and behavioral factors that can increase the level of risk, it is sometimes difficult to pin point what these are. Luckily, dorsaVi can not only help you understand how these factors can impact on the risk to your employees, but we can also help you reduce these risks through use of our wearable sensor technology.

"The Emergency Response Unit's goal is to reach the pinnacle of safety; the 'ViSafe' study has proven to be a practical and essential tool to assess work activities, deciding on the purchase of/or developing plant and equipment in the future. 'ViSafe' has proven to be a fundamental step in our workplace safety."

Sean Watters, Emergency Response Unit Manager at Transport For London

"You tell them in the classroom, these are the techniques you should be using. Tip from the hip, keep your back straight, bend at the knees. The myVisafe technology allowed them to actually see that, in the red zone versus the green zone while they were performing the tasks out there in the factory."

Rowena Terlingen, HSE Manager at VISY

"As the onsite team for Stone Masonry within Laing O'Rourke, we found the use of wearable technology incredibly interesting. It was very good to see the link between our MSD's and everyday work activities. The DorsaVi team came back to site and ran a workshop in which our operatives and senior management were presented with the risk profile for our Stoney Masonry work. This was valuable and gave us positive outcomes that will ultimately enable us to become better at what we do!"

Callum McConnachie, Section Manager at Laing O'Rourke
