"The format worked well for our staff. The group session provided information that assisted staff in monitoring individual work habits to minimize the potential for injuries. The personal consultations proved helpful and allowed for one-on-one assessments of individual workstations. It was a very informative session. I know that a number of our staff have already noticed significant improvements from the changes that we have implemented. Thank you – it was a pleasure working with you."
