According to Safe Work Australia, the total economic cost of work-related injuries and illnesses for the 2008-09 financial year is estimated to be $60.6 billion dollars. Numerous studies have shown the importance of early treatment in the facilitation of return to work and return to health outcomes. By taking the time to identify the warning signs and implement a proactive early intervention program, you are able to reduce the number of Work Safe claims. At Kieser, we stress the importance of early physiotherapy and rehabilitation programs before the rise of a serious injury.
Early intervention is about identifying and responding to warning signs and reports of incidents and accidents in the workplace. Early intervention and a focus on workplace rehabilitation can reduce the economic and human costs associated with workplace injuries. This is shown to reduce lost time, halve total claims cost, and have a major impact at reducing long-term off work claims.
Investing in the health and wellbeing of your workers will benefit you as an employer in a number of ways:
- Preventing long term sick leave and workers comp claims
- Decrease the loss of productivity
- Shows respect for the worker and their health and wellbeing
- Prevents long term absence
- Improves overall morale
- Increases the probability of return to work
- Promotes a workplace that is supportive and committed to the health and wellbeing of workers
At Kieser, we have a comprehensive team of physiotherapists, exercise scientists, and exercise physiologists who work with you to provide an entire range of physiotherapy and rehabilitation programs. With over 7 locations around Melbourne, your employees can spend less time traveling and more time rehabilitating.
