What is our Experience?
Over years of collectively managing thousands of Workcover and privately insured patients, we have developed an awareness of the many issues, tactics and pitfalls associated with workplace injury claims. We have successfully rehabilitated thousands of cases back to gainful employment.
Goals of our PROACTIVE workplace intervention:
- Reduced Workcover premiums
- Improved staff morale
- Improved staff effectiveness/productivity
- Proactive rather than reactive workforce
1.Early Intervention (in-rooms or on-site);
We immediately respond (within 24hrs) to any workplace accident, injury or claim to reduce claim costs by correctly treating the injury in its early stages and managing the claim process effectively. We also liaise directly with the OH&S or HR manager and can even help implement policy.
Performed on 'at risk' staff members to reduce likelihood of an injury.
Topics ranging from back care to posture and injury prevention.
4.Manual Handling training;
Updated information for all staff members specific to the physical requirements of their manual tasks.
To minimize the impact of current working conditions on staff well being.
These are a simple and cost effective way to identify employees that might be easily susceptible to injury and hence future workcover claims.
7.Preventative stretching and exercise programs;
Home exercise programs for rehabilitation and injury prevention in either an individual or group setting.
