Innovative service eases the strain of overexertion injuries

Innovative service eases the strain of overexertion injuries

Handling materials and objects is part of the job for countless workers, from manufacturing to construction to wholesale. Too often, handling objects comes at a steep price, costing employers nearly $13B a year from overexertion injuries. The Liberty Mutual ErgoValuator™, a new service from Liberty Mutual, tackles this critical issue by helping employers pinpoint overexertion risk, protecting workers, and ultimately stemming the flow of costly workers compensation claims.

Easy intervention, quick feedback

With Liberty Mutual ErgoValuator™, our risk control service can cut through traditional challenges and quickly provide targeted information businesses can implement right away—all via video footage shot with any smartphone. After a video is uploaded to our new app, computer vision and artificial intelligence algorithms (developed by Kinetica Labs, Inc.), combined with 40+ years of extensive workplace safety data researched by Liberty Mutual, produce a risk analysis that our risk control consultants can interpret for you. In minutes, customers have a detailed report with the feedback needed to help remedy the overexertion situation. For more complicated situations, we can also provide phone consultation to walk through findings and discuss possible solutions.

Big wins for businesses

Customers who have used Liberty Mutual ErgoValuator™ have found several benefits:

We look forward to taking that significant step toward protecting workers and containing the threat of overexertion injuries in workplaces, to help businesses focus on what they do best.
