Staff injury prevention and early intervention
Some workplaces have repetitive or sustained tasks which require workers to lift, carry, push, pull, hold or move objects or people. A number of individuals in the workforce are likely to be experiencing niggling aches or pains related to their work that have the potential to develop into more serious injuries. High rates of injury have a negative impact on workplace productivity, insurance premiums and employee wellbeing.
A staff injury prevention and early intervention program has the potential to avoid or reduce the rate of serious injuries through a combination of physical treatment, self-management, job analysis and redesign, and manual handling education. These interventions can often avoid a Return to Work SA claim being lodged and time lost to injury.
