RISK REDUCTION FOR STUDENT ATHLETES
Continuing to play after an injury occurs can worsen that injury and lead to time off the court for doctor visits or surgeries much more than just an injury time-out. Proper preparation, technique and hydration are key factors in keeping students safe from injury. In the event of an injury, student athletes should speak up about their symptoms.
RISK REDUCTION FOR LEGISLATORS
As concerns over the growing number of sports-related injuries increase, our nation’s legislators must do their part to support bills and draft new legislation to provide a higher standard of injury prevention for our student athletes.
RISK REDUCTION FOR EMPLOYERS
Reducing the level of risk in the workplace is every employer’s responsibility.
