Why We Need To Do Injury Prevention?

As an employer, if the organization removes the potential hazards that first caused the injury, the organization will benefit by making the workplace safer for all your workers. There are two categories of costs associated with work injury, i.e. insured costs and uninsured costs.

The Insured Costs Include: 

  • Employees’ Compensation
  • Medical Expenses
  • Losses of Income
  • Compensation for Permanent Disability, etc. 

The Uninsured Costs include: 

  • Lower Worker Morale and Company Image
  • Higher Labour Conflict
  • Loss of Skills/Experience
  • Idle Time – Work Interruption
  • Surplus Workers for Replacement of Injured Worker
  • Cleaning Up after Accident
     

In the Iceberg Effect, the indirect costs of a workplace injury can be up to nine times more than the direct costs. Are you willing to pay the costs continuously?

 Why We Do Injury Management? 

Injury management is a term used to describe all the process involved in helping an injured employee to recover and return to work safely at the right time for the right job arrangements. This is because statistics have shown that the longer a person is away from work, the less chance there is that they will return at all. If the injury management process is handled well, the injured worker will feel valued and return to work in a more organized manner. If your organization values your employees, you must have to develop an effective injury prevention and injury management program. 

In the work injury management area, we focus on the application of ergonomics to facilitate the return-to-work process which includes the task analysis and review, tools and workstation modification and work environment fit testing. In the effective injury management process, the ergonomics consultant would assist to achieve the following goals: 

  • Obtain a good match between the worker, work setting and work environment
  • Decrease musculoskeletal discomfort and enhance the recovery
  • Decrease the risk of re-injury by using ergonomics techniques on task analysis and re-design
  • Improve the overall workplace health and safety
  • Effectively manage the productivity
