Improving safety performance can be achieved by screening candidates that are most suited to the role within your organisation before they are employed. Strict protocols have been developed to ensure appropriate and consistent screening measures are obtained, and accurate recommendations are made. In addition to our standard protocols, we can tailor pre-employment medicals to meet any relevant health concerns or specific requirements you may have in your organisation.
Each assessment is approximately 45min in duration and is completed by either our Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologists. Candidates can booked in at any of our four locations across Adelaide.
Our training workshops reduce the risk of injury with simple, practical and realistic techniques.
With our team of Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists working closely together, workers receive the treatments they require. Implementing early intervention that is evidence based, lead to reduced lost time injury rates.
All physical conditioning programmes are essentially designed and implemented to the demands of the job for a successful transition back into the work place. With a large range of resistance and aerobic based equipment, accurate job dictionaries, programmes are tailored and commence with intensive one on one sessions, and progress to cost effective small group supervised sessions. Where possible, work related tasks are simulated to ensure safe work techniques to minimise the risk of re-injury.
At the completion of the physical conditioning programme, final assessments are conducted to determine the readiness of a safe return to work.
Early intervention treatments
Taking a pro-active approach in injury treatment can possibly prevent an official return to work claim. With minimal waiting times, AEP’s treating Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists can provide an injured worker with treatment and an expert opinion. This has no financial impact if a claim is lodged, as it will commence from the date of the injury.
Getting a worker back to work quickly after a work injury increases the likelihood of a full recovery and return to work. Job dictionaries are a useful tool for identifying suitable duties that can be performed while they recover from their injury. Having a job/task breakdown and guidance on the physical demands required for each task, injury risks and how each task can be performed safely can facilitate an early return.
Job dictionaries are an essential communication aid for people involved in planning and facilitating a worker’s recovery and return to work.
We pride ourselves on delivering cost effective services as we understand the financial pressure placed upon companies. On-site seminars are a great way to educate workers, assisting with the prevention and management of injuries.
Seminars to choose from include:
- Back care and mobility
- Shoulder stability and strength
- Manual handling
- Work-life balance
- Eating well to live well – impact of dietary choices on your health
- Physical activity – are you getting enough?
Seminars are 60min in duration.
Return to Work SA statistics indicate that over a third of injuries could be prevented if appropriate injury prevention and management strategies were in place. AEP can assist organisations looking to improve the health and resilience of their workers which in turn will lead to reduced work injury claims and a happier more productive workforce.
We achieve this by educating and training workers regarding injury prevention, while fast tracking physical rehabilitation and ensuring a safe and swift return to work in the event of a work place injury.
Minimal waiting times
Our four purposely built rehabilitation clinics across metropolitan Adelaide provide easy access and minimal waiting times. Each clinic is staffed with Accredited Allied Health professionals employed directly by AEP, ensuring continuity of care through all stages of the physical rehabilitation process.
