MoveSafe® Engage Training
Participants will gain practical knowledge on how to use their bodies properly and how to implement healthy movement habits to improve their quality of life.
As the cornerstone of an overall MoveSafe® Program, MoveSafe training includes the following 3 Main Elements:
Participants will learn:
#1 Prepare and Maintain the Body
Participants are educated on the importance of a pre-work warm-up, frequent Interrupt recovery exercises and simple microbreaks in order to both prepare and maintain the body for the demands of the work. Trainees will learn the benefits of the exercises and will be trained on how to safely perform a full set of warm-up and interrupt exercises, designed to offset the physical stresses commonly encountered in the work environment.
#2 Prepare the Work Area and Equipment
Participants will learn how the fit of their tools, equipment and work environment affects their ability to move safely. MoveSafe training specialists will educate participants on optimal body mechanics and teach them ways to troubleshoot their work area and equipment if it doesn’t allow them to get into correct postures and positions to perform the work.
Helping people to understand that they can adapt their environment and equipment, whether it be a chair and computer, or a workbench and tool belt, to reduce physical workload will help them take an active role in ergonomics and injury prevention.
#3 Move Safe
Participants will learn the 'Big 3' movement fundamentals - Stable Base, Hinge at the Hips and Shoulders Anchored. Participants will learn about basic body anatomy and physiology and how good biomechanics can help them reduce stress to the body over time. Participants will have a chance to practice the ‘Big 3’ and will leave the session with a fuller understanding of how every movement matters as well as a renewed motivation to improve their physical function in order to stay healthy and fit throughout their lifetime.
I really appreciate your efforts, and I agree fully with all the concepts you teach. There is nothing more that I would love, than to get the culture of everyone here in woodlands to be proactive about preparing yourself physically for the job – office or fieldwork…it’s the root to many of the injuries we see.

Our simple, confidential on-line screening tool can help larger groups identify and prioritize individuals with more significant ergonomic concerns.
Suitable for teams of all sizes, this interactive session is focused on using available home furnishings to establish a good ergonomic home office set-up and encourage healthy postures and movements.
Participants will learn how to set up their workstation to encourage healthy positioning as well as learn practical habits for movement so they can “give their body what it needs while still getting their work done”.
