Whether it’s picking up files in an office, sitting for 8 hours per day, moving stock in a retail outlet, or carrying parts in a factory - just about every job in every industry places some physical stress on the body. That means just about every employee is at risk of suffering painful sprains and strains, or even serious back injuries.
Sprains, strains and back injuries account for more than half the claims made to Worker’s Compensation and are responsible for the vast majority of workdays lost through injury.
So what can your company do about it?
Home Physio Melbourne has been providing on-site physical therapy to employers and large corporations for 10 years.
In this time, we have been able to drastically reduce employee time off due to injury by implementing work-safe practices for employers and employees alike. We have specifically worked with Tip-Top, The Economist, Colgate-Palmolive and the Hearst Corporation in NYC.
Through early diagnosis and treatment, we can help minimize unnecessary Worker’s Compensation claims. By doing so, the unnecessary costs of insurance claims and premiums associated with injury can be reduced or even prevented.
