Can Office Massages Really Lower Workers Comp Claims? [Video]

Aug 25, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Is it all hype? Or does workplace massage really lower workers comp claims?

Check out what one human resources professional has to say about how office massage has saved the company money. (video below)

How Office Massage Lowers Workers Comp Claims

For Diana Hasselfeld, Nurse Practitioner at Varian Medical Systems, office massage saves her company money. 

Diana prefers onsite massage therapy for her employees over physical therapy for several reasons: 

  • Avoid OSHA claims: Some injured workers can be effectively assisted with massage therapy. The way OSHA is currently structured, massage therapy treatments do not need to be recorded as an OSHA complaint. 
  • Use with office ergonomics: Diana's company combines massage therapy sessions with work station changes as part of their Ergonomic Plan
  • Program is flexible: While a 15 minute weekly session is most common, high risk employees can opt for 30-minute sessions to keep muscle soreness from escalating to a full injury.
