Onsite Workplace Physiotherapy

We provide a registered Physiotherapist onsite at your workplace to manage aches, pains and injuries

Why provide onsite workplace Physiotherapy at your organization?

We provide onsite workplace Physiotherapy on the Gold Coast, Tweed Heads & Brisbane. Onsite Physiotherapy can significantly decrease your costs and boost worker engagement/productivity by providing:

Early intervention

  • Treatment and advice in the first 24 hours is essential in minimising the duration and severity of any musculoskeletal complaint.
  • Early interventions for these complaints and associated symptoms will result in a quicker recovery, maintain workers at work and reduce the probability of it progressing to a claim.
  • If communication is requested as part of this service WH&S staff will be notified within 3 hours of a worker who presents with a work related injury, or pain that is significantly aggravated by their work, in order to help comply with the duties imposed in the WHS Act.

Reduction in WorkCover claims

  • Early intervention of Musculoskeletal complaints reduces the rate of these complaints progressing to compensable claims.
  • This can help prevent non work related injuries progressing to work related.
  • This equates to a significant cost saving to the employer.

Enhanced worker health and wellbeing 

  • A healthy pain free worker is far more productive than someone in pain
  • Builds rapport, trust and understanding between the TEAM, boosting morale
  • Encourages workers to seek assistance with the Physiotherapist to resolve issues before they become a LTI (lost time injury)

Research:

Early intervention Physiotherapy with poultry meat workers resulted in an 18% reduction in claims rates and a reduction in cost per claim of 27% for those that progressed to Workers compensation. Additionally, there was a 37% reduction in the number of days off.

Workplace-based Physiotherapy and early reporting and intervention (within 24hours of injury) results in a 35% reduction in average cost of claims and a 58% reduction in number of days of compensation.
