Ongoing Employee Education Sessions
As a form of continuous education and training, the BodyCare onsite occupational physiotherapist will regularly engage and present to specific groups of individuals in each work zone onsite to educate them about the most common injuries presenting in their work area and how to best avoid them.
BodyCare use the data collated in its software to ensure specific training is provided to each task onsite. The occupational physiotherapist performs various assessments on the tasks employees are carrying out to be able to provide feedback and education to each employee in their working environment in real time.
This training aims to help create improved body awareness for each employee and prevent injuries occurring in the long term.
Job Task Analysis
BodyCare assists in streamlining the injury management process by preparing a Job Task Analysis, which evaluates the physical demands of each task included in a particular job role.
The Job Task Analyses will be tailored to the specific needs of each client and will include analysis of any number of tasks. As allied health practitioners skilled in observation of movement, an analysis of the physical demands of a particular task is well within our capabilities. The information is then presented in a clear concise format to the OH&S team.
Manual Handling Training
Musculoskeletal injuries affect a very large portion of the workforce, from clerical staff to labourers, and results in increasing numbers of lost workdays each year.
In aiming to minimise these problems, BodyCare offers an educational program to assist companies in preventing and managing injuries in the workplace. The statistical information provided by BodyCare’s software allows the program to be tailored to the individual needs of the company.
Therefore, BodyCare’s manual handling program is particular to the working conditions and the nature of injuries suffered by employees and includes the following:
- The Importance of understanding manual handling
- Anatomy of the most common injuries occurring
- Common Causes of Injury
- Common Injuries
- Appropriate management of aches/pains and injuries
- Principles of safe lifting and bending
- Preventing Injuries
Risk assessments are an important step in protecting workers as well as complying with legal requirements and provide a logical and systematic approach to managing risks in the workplace. We consider the level of risk that comes with each hazard.
Our onsite occupational physiotherapists help you in identifying manual handling risk factors and recommend strategies to reduce these risks through a number of solutions such as worksite layout, procedural changes, education and training.
Through a risk assessment we can:
- ID hazards in a workplace, task, or process
- Identify and prioritise appropriate control measures
- Identify and eliminate ergonomic risk factors
- Reduce accidents

A worksite assessment is a specialised onsite assessment of a worker’s duties and/or potential suitable work duties. This may be appropriate if a worker:
- Has sustained an injury or is reporting pain or symptoms at work.
- Is recovering from injury or following an extended period away from work or a particular task.
- Is being placed in a job where there are concerns about their physical suitability for the tasks required.
Worksite assessments can provide recommendations on preventative strategies, actions and advice to minimise potential work injuries and optimise outcomes. In addition, worksite assessments:
- Assist to resolve problems identified to be contributing factors in workplace injuries or the worker’s symptoms.
- Determine the need for workplace modifications or equipment.
- Provide a useful tool for upgrading medical certificates or sourcing suitable duties, which correspond to the worker’s functional capacity.
