EP007 – Matching a Fire Fighter’s Mobility with their Demands (Movement Hygiene and Other Interventions).
Many factors that increase fire fighters’ risks are non-modifiable, because they can’t be changed (are “part” of the job), or change so slowly that they aren’t within a fire fighter’s control. Some factors however, such as mobility, are modifiable within meaningful limits, and can yield strong positive effects to a fire fighter’s health and longevity. In this episode, we pick up where we left off in EP006, and discuss the various interventions that can help address the mobility needs of fire fighters . Throughout the conversation we build on the big conceptual “rocks” of mobility, and emphasize the importance of using sound reasoning and judgment when embarking on improving mobility capacity.
