Construct Health works to deliver an integrated approach to health, safety and well-being. For you, the client, this results in the seamless provision of a service exemplified by effective communication and streamlined response protocols. We do not believe in hidden expenses – just cost effective support and solutions.
We are acutely aware that clinical decisions within each step of the injury response and rehabilitation process influence the classification and recordability of an injury. Our team understands and works daily under OSHA and similar injury classification systems. Our people make decisions that have positive injury management outcomes for your workforce and risk and recordable injury mitigation outcomes for you, our clients.
In our experience the best way to control work-place injury and illness is through the adoption of a three tiered approach focused upon worker-centric injury prevention and health education; rapid and effective injury management protocols for when an injury does occur and streamlined rehabilitation pathways to get that worker back to full productive duties.
In our first 12 months onsite with QGC we were able to deliver a reduction in musculoskeletal injuries from 73% to 18% of total recordable injuries. This was on a large scale project (8000 workers at its peak) across multiple sites spanning a large geographical region and encompassing a number of high risk tasks. Similar results have been seen in mining with a 67% reduction in injuries at one underground mine, 26% at a second and 83% at an open cut mine since the inception of CH’s services.
With all of our clients, we establish and maintain strong working relationships with the onsite Health Advisors. We work in close collaboration with the Health Advisors to ensure that appropriate Return to Work (RTW) strategies are put in place resulting in early and optimised injury outcomes for all injuries.
We implement robust Injury Prevention strategies and training packages to address issues related to manual task handling, work organisation and ergonomic design with particular focus on the prevention of strain/sprain injuries.
CH has developed concierge medical services for a number of our clients. This service enables patients to access fast-tracked medical and surgical reviews thus expediting the injury management process. This service sees a patient go from admission to consultation, x-ray or scanning and then surgery within a 24 – 48 hour time period. Contrast this with the typical GP system in which it can take weeks, if not months, for an injured worker to seek a specialist opinion. Development of this service has been acknowledged by Queensland Workplace Health and Safety as delivering outstanding results for workers.
CH has also developed nationwide facilitated injury management services for a number of clients. One of the greatest challenges for a company is to receive uniform healthcare. When an injury occurs remote to our clinic or onsite service, we source a reliable local therapist train them in the injury management and communication expectations of our client and ensure that the client receives the information that they need to best manage their worker.
At Construct Health we have worked successfully within mining, construction, oil and gas exploration and production, security, defence, aviation, and corporate and manufacturing industries.
So whether you represent a large multinational or run your own small business or contracting firm we can tailor a solution to meet all of your injury management, injury prevention and health and wellbeing needs. Contact us today if you need assistance with any or all of the following services:
