What we do

Eliminating Your Most Expensive Workplace Injuries

Worklete is a technology platform that reduces musculoskeletal injuries for transportation, shipping and logistics companies by over 55% on average, saving companies millions of dollars a year in direct and indirect workers’ compensation costs. Our mobile-ready platform is scalable and effective for even the largest, most distributed, and highly-mobile workforces.

53% of all workers comp related injuries can be prevented by adjusting the way that people use their bodies, interact with their environment and move through space. Our technology platform delivers consistent, short learning modules in 3-5 minute increments every week to build safe, strong movement habits over time - the same way that a professional athlete trains. Our goal is to make it easy for workers to learn and adopt, minimizing the impact on your company's operations.
