The 6-step approach

For effective injury prevention, treatment and management strategy, Allied Health Services Australia recommends the following:

Pre employment Assessments – This ensures that the company is not taking on a potential risk or liability from the outset of employment. Specific job descriptions are matched to a specific level of assessment to ensure accuracy with testing protocols. This occurs subsequent to an “on site” job description and work place analysis.

Injury Management System- All injuries are to be identified and directed for diagnosis, treatment and prognosis on the day of injury to prevent delay of return to work and potential claim. An accurate documentation of the events and resultant outcomes may assist as a defense against an over stated claim in the future.

Onsite weekly “Employee Injury Clinic”- Maintains a healthy work place free from injury. Ensures that potential claims are avoided and any injury is quickly and proactively managed regardless of the cause.

Risk Assessment, Stratification and Solution- Identify potential risks and provide cost effective solution before a serious injury arises. Most injuries are preventable, often risk to injury can be dramatically reduced through either of the following:

  • Further training, new technique or strategy
  • Change in the environmental set up
  • Introduction or modification of equipment

Manual Handling Education- Most people genuinely wish to conduct themselves in a safe manner to ensure absence of injury. However, many people simply lack the knowledge and skill set to complete such. This education is essential if a company is going to maintain low work place injury, in particular back injury associated through poor lifting technique.

Healthy Options Program- Employees often fail to maintain their own personal physical capacity at a level that may be deemed sufficient to perform the most basic expected duties. Spinal and overall physical strength is ignored, particularly in the ageing work force. The most common excuse, “I Don’t Have Time Due to Work Commitments”. However, a healthy options program will not only increase and maintain the physical capacity of your employees to complete their employment duties, but also increase their morale and feelings of support from the company itself.

The Reality Check

  • During 2011 within the Queensland Health Care and Social Assistance industries there were 11,711 new statutory claims, which equated to 12.6%. This figure further equated to a $78.7 million dollar expense to the employers of Queensland.
  • In Queensland 48,292 injuries were musculoskeletal related, which equated to 52.1% of all injuries.
  • The largest area of injuries indicated by Work Cover Queensland were “back” related, with 17,466 claims and thus 18.8% of all musculoskeletal injuries.
  • Healthcare and social assistance represented the 3rd highest industry for new common law claims, which equated 494 in total.
  • Incidence rates of “serious workers compensation claims” increase with employee age.
  • A typical serious claim required on average 4 weeks absence from work.
  • One quarter of serious claims required 12 or more weeks off work.
  • One in five serious claims involved an injury to the back.
  • Work related injury and illness were estimated to cost $60.6 billion in the 2008-
    2009 financial year. This represented 4.8% of the GDP.
  • 43% of all serious claims were the result of sprains and strains of joints and adjacent muscles.
  • 40.8% of injuries were the result of “body stressing” of the employee.
