Injury Prevention

Reduce your workplace’s risk of injury and compensation claims with our range of injury prevention services.

Musculoskeletal disorders are the most common cause of workers compensation claims in Australia. At Axis, we believe prevention is better than cure. That is why we offer the following range of Injury Prevention strategies to reduce the burden of musculoskeletal disorders in your workplace.

Task Analysis

A task analysis (single job) or job dictionary (all jobs) is a comprehensive list of demands within an organisation and is an integral part of an injury prevention and management program.  They provide essential and quantified information on the physical and functional requirements of a worker’s job. Our analysis documents the physical and functional demands, psychosocial and cognitive demands, environmental conditions, human factor considerations and organisational context.

Pre-employment Screening

Pre-employment screenings are designed for clients who require a structured functional and physical screening assessment which matches the critical job demands of a candidate’s role. A screening can be undertaken to determine if a worker can meet the genuine occupational requirements of a specific job.

Risk Assessment

Manual task risk assessments are utilised by Axis as part of a comprehensive risk management model, in order to help protect workers and reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders. This involves examining the characteristics of the hazardous manual task, to assess whether the exposure, forces, movements, postures and/or psycho-social demands undertaken by the worker increase their risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders.

Active Office Program

Ergonomic Training – Exploring the physical, functional and cognitive demands of a workplace, and providing education and strategies to limit musculoskeletal disorders and associated health issues from sedentary behaviours.

Train the Trainer – this program aims to educate and upskill workers on ergonomic checks and principles to undertake basic assessments within your workplace when required.

Bespoke Ergonomic Checklists – Axis can assess your workplace needs and create a bespoke ergonomic checklist that considers your workplace’s own practices, procedures and equipment.

Activity Based Workplaces (ABW) – Based on prolific evidence that sedentary postures are detrimental to our health, Axis can assist your workplace in identifying strategies to sit less and move more.

Safe Moves Program

The Axis Safe Moves Program provides practical and evidence-based guidance for managing the risks associated with hazardous manual tasks that may lead to musculoskeletal disorders. Adopting a risk management approach, our Safe Moves Programs are designed according to the physical, functional and cognitive demands of your work place and the best way to manage the associated risks.

“The clinical expertise and customer service from the AXIS team has been nothing short of phenomenal. I am really happy with the outcome and our employees have definitely benefitted from participating in the assessment”.
