Move Well Health programs consist of both Injury Prevention and Injury Rehabilitation solutions.

Injury Prevention

1. Ergonomic Analysis (4 phases)

(i) Task Analysis

  • Includes the conduction of an ergonomic / Job capacity analysis for each individual role onsite.

(ii) Preparation of Job Capacity Statements (JCS)

  • From the task analysis, a JCS is created for all roles on site and linked to the organisational chart.

(iii) Creation of an Ergonomic Risk Register

  • Preparation an 'Ergonomic Risk Register' for the site that is ranked based on potential musculoskeletal risk.

(iv) Utilisation of JCS

  • Provision of the completed JCS to the pre-employment medical provider, the site health team, Occupational Physician, dept. managers and site HR team.


2. Education and Training (5 phases)

(i) Participative Ergonomic Seminars

  • Includes specific participation of workers in identifying musculoskeletal risk in their workplace and education on the application of risk reduction strategies. This includes the application a hierarchy of control to reduce identified risks and implementation of controls identified.

(ii) Task specific awareness training

  • Role specific training and hazard identification. Education will be provided in inductions on specific ergonomic hazards as listed in the ergonomic register.

(iii) Job Specific Stretching and Strengthening programs

  • Includes the development and implementation of a stretching and strengthening program specific to individual workgroups to improve task specific fitness and strength. Task-specific muscle endurance training and task modification have been shown to significantly increase work tolerance limits and reduce the chance of injury (Mackey el al 2005).

(iv) Functional capacity testing

  • Includes the development and implementation of a system to ensure existing and new personnel working in high risk roles undergo functional capacity evaluations against the requirements of the JCS.

(v) Supervisory training 

  • Supervisors will receive additional training that specifically addresses their role in the ergonomic intervention process.


3. Real-Time Ultrasound Imaging (RTUI)

Includes the implementation of a specific strengthening and retraining program where individuals in high risk workgroups have individual sessions with a Movewell Health physiotherapist with RTUI.

The RTUI service provides;

  • A live subcutaneous view of an individual's core muscles
  • Accurate assessment of the patient's stabilizing muscle function
  • Independent assessment and verification of stabilising muscle function
  • Effective treatment to improve stabilising muscle function
  • Valuable information to other practitioners involved in the patient's care


4. Sustaining the program

Ongoing support and education is essential to maintaining the effectiveness of the program. This includes; 

  • Maintaining appropriate channels for hazard control interventions
  • Updating Ergonomic Risk Register as appropriate
  • Developing and implementing a system for initial and ongoing training specific to the ergonomic hazards identified
  • Maintaining buy-in from management, supervisors and workers


Injury Rehabilitation

In the unfortunate event of an injury being sustained on-site, Movewell Health onsite physiotherapy programs ensure early intervention and appropriate use of contemporary tools / resources for rapid injury rehabilitation by highly trained and experienced physiotherapists.

Movewell onsite physiotherapy services include;  

  • Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy
  • Manipulative Physiotherapy
  • Biomechanical retraining
  • Core stabilisation programs
  • Specific rehabilitation programs
  • Return to work programs and advancement
  • Liaising with other health care professionals both on and off site as appropriate
