Injuries at work are something that all employees and employers fear.
Even the simplest of injuries can cause lost time and productivity for business. In some industries serious claims have grown by 80% year on year with over 2% of staff affected. This level of lost productivity has an immediate impact on profitability as well as being reflected in WorkCover premiums. Fortunately injuries that involve death or permanent disability are less common but must also be considered when planning employee risk.
One of the ways of helping avoid injuries at work is insuring that the right person is employed for the right job. A comprehensive Pre-employment medical potentially helps mitigate the risks to business by ensuring new employees are fit for the role.
