Workplace Health Assessments
Improve safety by determining the risks
Workwells’ Workplace Assessment tools provide you with accurate and practical information about the physical demands of your workplace. The information gained will help you to develop an effective injury prevention strategy and help facilitate the safe return of an injured worker.
Using computerised assessment tools we are able to accurately measure the force, flexibility and endurance requirements of any work task. We can provide you with information about one or two jobs or generate a detailed analysis of your whole work place – which can be used to create an Inherent Duties Manual and a list of Key Physical Requirements for your workplace. This information will eliminate guess work and help you make objective decisions about occupational health and safety issues.
The information gained in a Work Well Workplace Assessment can be used in many ways. It can help you to modify high risk activities or to ensure someone returning from injury does not perform activities likely to lead to re-injury. Using your Inherent Duties Manual you will be able to quickly and effectively communicate the physical demands of your workplace to health professionals, avoiding unnecessary delays in return to work activities. Lastly you will be able to ensure that current or potential employees are guided to jobs they have the strength and flexibility to safely perform.
Workwell have assisted a range of employers in the development of complete inherent duties manuals for their workplace. In addition, in our role as both onsite physiotherapist and early intervention provider, workplace assessments are frequently done as part of the treatment / injury management process.
