Onsite Exercise Programs
Exercise programmes developed by physiotherapists
Workwell use the evidence-based framework of a ‘work-related activity program’ (WRAP) to tailor an onsite exercise program most appropriate for your staff and their particular workflow. This is specifically designed to reduce the incidence of soft tissue strains and sprains within your workplace. In doing so it will reduce time lost to injury and the likelihood of expensive work cover claims.
Employees are far less likely to experience musculoskeletal injuries if they are flexible and strong enough to meet the particular physical demands of their workplace. A specific preventative exercise program ensures that your employees physically match their jobs and minimises injury caused by overload of soft tissue structures. Together with instruction in general exercise, aerobic fitness and flexibility, a specific work-related activity program will ensure you have a fitter, healthier and more productive workforce.
Importantly our program stresses the need for employees to take personal responsibility for their own health and directly provides them with strategies that will help improve health behaviours. With a strong emphasis on exercise with respect to critical job demands, employee engagement, education, self-management, functional capacity, pacing and activity upgrade strategies, the Workwell WRAP is designed to achieve the realisation of a healthier workforce.
