The level of work related injuries in Australian companies have been rising steadily over the past decade. Despite using the correct safety equipment and clothing, and adhering to health and safety rules, many workers get injured every single day at their work place.

At Work Active we strive to prevent workplace related injuries by tackling the problem from all angles. We believe that most work injuries can be avoided by providing staff with not only the right equipment, but also the right training to inform them how to use it properly. We also offer various services like workplace & corporate Physiotherapy, in-house massage, Melbourne manual handling training, and office ergonomics training & consulting in order to improve health and safety standards at your place of business. …Readmore

It is common knowledge that work related injuries are issues that companies have to deal with on an on-going basis. After all, employers have a duty of care towards their employees. By implementing active preventive measures in your place of work will show your employees that their safety and wellness is always held of high priority.

One of our most popular and effective services for this is manual handling training in Melbourne. Our professional Physiotherapists, who are all experienced occupational health and safety providers, will visit your business premises to instruct your staff on proper manual handling techniques. And as incorrect manual handling is responsible for the majority of work related injuries and causes millions of dollars worth of compensation claims each year, the info they’ll provide to your employees will prove to be invaluable.

During the workshop our Physiotherapist will inspect the work premises for hazards and risks that might not be obvious to occupational health and safety officers who have no Physiotherapy background. We will then train your employees in the best practices for manual handling. Our sessions are hands on, in your work environment, engaging and educational. Furthermore, your employees will receive training in simple and effective warm up and stretching practices, which can help prevent the majority of injuries. We will even provide a short anatomy lesson and posture coaching as well as emphasising the correct safety mind set at work.

All of these different approaches make up a comprehensive package tailored completely to your needs and workspace. The benefits are numerous: heightened awareness of risks and hazards, reduced amount of work related injuries and workers compensation claims, and an improved relationship between the employer and workers.

If your business involves manual handling then you should not hesitate in contacting our Physiotherapy team today. Together we can create a 100% customised package that will improve the overall health and safety at your workplace. Your employees will be happier and safer and you will see a reduction in injuries, which will ultimately benefit your bottom line.
