Workplace Injury Management

Injury management is defined as a workplace-managed process incorporating the employer and medical management team, from the time of injury to facilitate efficient maintenance in or return to suitable employment. Effective injury management provides physical, psychological and financial benefits to employees, minimises disruption to work. reduces costs to all concerned.

As an employer, you have a responsibility to ensure the safety of your employees, but you also have to ensure that you are fulfilling your duty to protect the public and the environment at the same time. This means that you need to have a workplace injury management plan in place, and you need to ensure that you are following all the correct regulations.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.

Physiotherapists focus on both prevention and rehabilitation. Treatment can be for problems caused by injury, disease or disability. Here are some examples:

  • Neck and back pain caused by problems in the muscles and skeleton.
  • Problems in the bones, joints, muscles and ligaments, such as arthritis and the after-effects of amputation
  • Lung problems such as asthma
  • Disability as a result of heart problems, and more

Physical therapists design treatment plans for each person’s individual needs, challenges, and goals. PTs and PTAs help people improve mobility, manage pain and other chronic conditions, recover from injury, and prevent future injury and chronic disease.

Commercial Drivers Medical

Commercial Driver Medicals (nationally known as Fitness to Drive Assessments), are conducted to increase safety on the road for all by ensuring drivers can adequately perform tasks when driving a heavy vehicle.

Professional drivers such as drivers of trucks, public passenger vehicles and vehicles carrying dangerous goods must meet higher medical standards because of the demands of their work, the extensive hours spent on the road and the serious consequences likely to result from a crash.

Amtan Workplace Doctors can help conduct a Fitness to Drive medical assessment consisting of the following tests and investigation of medical conditions: Health Questionnaire, Eyesight Test, Blood Pressure Check and other tests to ensure drivers are fit for the job.

Vaccinations

Immunisation is a safe and effective way to protect you and your employees from harmful, contagious diseases. It also safeguards the health of other people, now and for future generations.

We vaccinate against all the common seasonal illnesses, such as Influenza. This is an annual vaccination recommended across age groups.

Ensure that your employees are up to date with their vaccinations so that your business can run smoother with less sick time, increased peace of mind and comfort. Our doctors can also advise for any additional vaccinations required based on the employee, work environment and any seasonal issues.

Drug Testing

A Drug and Alcohol Screen is performed when a biological sample such as blood, urine, saliva or breath is collected and analysed. Analysing a sample takes from a few seconds up to 5 minutes and will detect the presence or absence of drugs and alcohol or their metabolites in the sample collected.

The presence of certain drugs and alcohol or their metabolites indicates that the substance detected has been consumed. The consumption of certain drugs is prohibited by some employers and the results of a Drug and Alcohol Test will determine if a worker is fit to enter the workplace and perform their duties safely.

Amtan Workplace Doctors performs testing to the standard set up Australian Standard Drug Class Screening Cut-off Levels (Australian Standard AS/NZS 4308 (Urine) and AS 4760 (Oral Fluid)).

Pre-employment Medicals

Pre-employment medical assessments protect the company against hiring an unsuitable worker, but they also protect the potential employee. Allowing someone to start in a new position, without understanding their ability to meet the physical demands of the job, is simply setting them up to fail.

The assessment may (depending on the employer’s requirements) involve a chest x-ray, blood tests, urine drug screen, alcohol breath test, audiometry (hearing test), spirometry (lung test), manual handling assessment, fitness test, MRI and/or ECG. If you wish to customise the screening, do let us know.
