What is it?
The intention of this campaign is to bring public awareness to their working environment and the role occupational health physiotherapists can play in reducing aches and pains, increase working longevity, and further demonstrate the benefits of a physiotherapist’s input in all areas of life. Our message is that physios are health experts in all areas of life, including work. The campaign is designed to educate the public and encourage them to see a physiotherapist if they find themselves struggling with work-related pain.
Why Occupational Health?
Occupational Health physiotherapy hasn’t received enough attention given the amount of time we all spend in our places of work over our lifetimes. We want to help as many people as possible who may be unknowingly affected by a poor working environment or poor approach to how they work. The areas of focus are:
- Reducing work-related injuries
- Work longevity
- Productivity in work
- Improving work conditions
- Improving quality of life
As healthcare professionals it is important to inform the masses about the health implications of a poor working environment and give them the tools and knowledge to correct it.
