Hey everyone, I'm brand new here and this is my first post, so let me apologize for any toes I instantly step on by being a PT Supervisor. Now, the reason I'm here: Our Safety. It's abysmal. It really is. Not our 'safety picture'. Not our DART frequency. Not our numbers. Not anything to do with production! I'm talking about our safety being poor. I know there is a lot of inherent resentment towards the word "safety" at UPS. A lot of it gets blown back on the safety supervisor. In fact, so much so, that it can wear on someone very quick (no wonder there is a lot of turnover in that spot!). But some of us do care, which is why I'm electing to take my free time each week to come on here, if there is interest, and talk with any of you that may have questions about body mechanics or chronic 'sores'. You'd be surprised how much of our bodies problems can be fixed by correct lifting posture (and I mean it goes so much deeper than the 8 Keys!). I have a pretty expansive background in athletics and I'm well versed in body building, performance training both fast and slow twitch muscle fibers, and lumbar (lower back) strengthening/posture. Please note that I am not a doctor and in no way am I offering this in lieu of medical advice. Do NOT seek my opinion in lieu of medical advice. Again, do NOT seek my opinion in lieu of medical advice. Nor does telling me about your injury count as 'telling a supervisor' when reporting an injury (and always report your injuries immediately!!!!). If any of you are interested I'd love to discuss and/or offer advice for keeping your body healthy. My specialty is body mechanics, but I can also help mildly with nutrition. Anyone who is interested just drop a small post in the thread and I'll get to it as soon as I get a chance! Ask anything about joint movement, high-risk injuries, preventative strengthening exercises, and more! Thanks and I hope to help any questions you may have!
