Workplace Safety and Productivity

Most people spend a significant portion of their life at work, whether that be in a traditional setting such as an office, healthcare facility, or construction site or an increasingly common workplace location such as a home office or at a local café. When we are carrying out a job, we deserve to do so in the most comfortable, safe, and effective manner possible. That is where occupational health and safety factors and Work Cover can come in to play an important part in your working life. 

At Ace Allied Health, our team identifies, treats, and manages a wide variety of workplace-related aspects. This involves a focus on injury prevention, health promotion, and relevant treatment. To do this, we take a physiotherapy approach that incorporates various features to improve your workplace experience and overall quality of life.

Workplace Safety and Productivity

Our physiotherapists are trained to assess specific demands of workplaces and address these in a way that helps keep workers healthy and benefiting from what they do each day. We can identify aspects that are relevant to your workplace, such as manual handling or long-term desk work, and create ways to help you prevent issues from occurring. This may involve methods such as: 

  • Identifying control measures. 
  • Education.
  • Assessments.
  • Individualised treatment plans.

Work Cover Physiotherapy

At Ace Allied Health, we carry out functional assessments, identify issues, diagnose, and collaborate with other healthcare professionals and employers to facilitate injury prevention and treatment under Work Cover. We also work with relevant parties to enable a worker’s rehabilitation and return to the workplace after an injury or illness.

Work Cover Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can help to prevent or improve workplace issues in several ways. Our team will discuss with you your requirements and goals and work to establish a management plan that helps you get the most out of your work. Our experienced and knowledgeable physiotherapists can focus on aspects such as:

Ergonomics 

This involves factors such as your desk setup and work area and focuses on enabling you to work comfortably for an extended period of time with reduced risk of injuries, wear and tear, or health conditions.

Treatment Under Work Cover

We can provide treatment for a broad array of work-related issues, such as on-site injuries, that are part of a Work Cover claim.

Pre-Employment Assessments 

Our physios can deliver screenings that assess whether a potential employee is capable of the physical requirements of a certain workplace. This step can reduce the risk of injuries, illness, Work Cover claims, and financial stress. 

Manual Handling Training. 

Workers who are unaware of safe techniques or unable to carry out manual handling tasks are at a significantly higher risk of injury or discomfort in the workplace. We can provide education and training that is specific to particular work environments to minimise risk.

Risk Assessment. 

Being aware of hazards in a work environment can be pivotal to safety and productivity. Our physios are experienced in identifying potential issues and implementing control measures and preventive steps to reduce risk.

Early Intervention Techniques.  

Physiotherapy can identify and assess a variety of issues and provide relevant management before a problem escalates to a significant injury or Work Cover claim.

No two people are the same, and that is similar for jobs and workplaces. This means that injury prevention and health promotion must be individualised to gain the best results. We collaborate with you to develop the best approach for you and your working environment.
