Emergency Services

Due to the physically demanding and volatile nature of the work, emergency service personnel are frequently injured in the line of duty.


Injuries In Emergency Services By The Numbers:


Firefighters have the second highest incidence rate of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) out of all occupations


Average cost of an injury to emergency services personnel


Percent of injuries resulting from strains and sprains for firefighters and police



Most would assume that uncontrollable external factors, such as burns, smoke inhalation, or physical confrontation are the primary cause of injury for emergency service personnel.

While other causes of injuries are prevalent, overexertion is the leading cause of injuries, the resulting days away from work, and the costs to the individuals and entities involved.

Injured firefighters, paramedics, and police officers are not only a danger to themselves, but injuries in the line of duty can compromise the safety of their co-workers and the people they serve. It is therefore critical to enhance worker durability and optimize job performance. The solution for preventing injuries must be reflexive and parallel the professional’s significant performance demands, as well as the focus on others’ safety often over their own.

Training emergency service personnel to be WORKLETE_PRODUCTIONS is the solution.
