Pre-employment health screenings are a valuable risk management tool for employers, ensuring that prospective employees are capable of performing the role safely and effectively. Physically Active’s team of Accredited Exercise Physiologists can tailor functional capacity assessments to suit all business needs. Whatever industry the business is in, the health and safety of employees is essential to productivity.
The benefits of conducting pre-employment assessments can help ensure a safer working environment and reduced risk of injuries. Pre-employment screenings also improve your companies profit and loss through reduced WorkCover and insurance claims, along with improved productivity by ensuring the employee is physically capable for the role.
We understand the urgency often associated with pre-employment functional capacity assessments. It is for this reason we guarantee to have the capacity assessment and results returned within 48 hours of initial contact.
Injury and illness can often lead to enforced time away from work to recover and rehabilitate the cause. A faster return-to-work usually occurs from quicker recovery times and improved workplace moral. A return-to-work via suitable or modified duties allows employees to return to the workplace and recommence a structured routine, helping to reduce the mental anguish associated with workcover and insurance claims.
Our Accredited Exercise Physiologists aim to reduce the return-to-work time and rehabilitate the injury that has presented. We also provide exercise programs to improve physical and mental work conditioning in preparation for return, improved manual handling, and work task techniques. This holistic and function-based approach decreases the risk of injury recurrence, providing safe progression back into full work duties.
The Physically Active team are accredited and registered with WorkCover Queensland to provide workplace rehabilitation and return-to-work services. Our Exercise Physiologists provide a science-based approach, with measurable treatment outcomes to effectively guide and prescribe treatment.
Corporate Health & Functional Movement
Staff health and wellness can have a large influence on business performance. When your staff are fit and healthy studies have shown productivity increases. Increased levels of physical activity can help to strengthen the immune system, resulting in a decrease in unscheduled sick leave. Staff health and wellness programs also improve engagement and provide another option to help improve team building and moral.
Staff health and wellness programs will differ for each company and department, influenced by job roles and business style. An effective health and wellness program will be tailored to each business differently and a “one size fits all” rule cannot be applied. Through an application of a wide base of functional movements, stretching, mobility, and strengthening – this will allow for an effective health and wellness program to be implemented in all job roles.
Our team of Accredited Exercise Physiologists are available to offer health and wellness programs, as well as ergonomic assessment and manual handling training to staff. Programs can be suited to a group or individual environment and take into account working posture, physical job requirements and current physical fitness levels. Exercise programs can help to reduce pain, improve function, and reduce the risk of injury while at work.
