Early Childhood Intervention Australia

Issue:
Sedentary nature of work and lack of awareness regarding ergonomics among the team.

Intervention:
Brief educational ergonomic screenings conducted for staff along with a seminar conducted including use of Therabands to promote movement. The recommendations from this were followed up by the organisation at the PHW discounted rate.

Pre and post intervention follow ups with the staff.

Results:
Reported improvement in neck pain (approx. 30% reduction) and improvement in the reported culture of movement and physical activity (approx. 20% improvement) from this basic intervention.

“PHW Group delivered an informative and down to earth group training session followed by 1:1 ergo assessments. As a result, staff are now equipped with appropriate equipment and information to avoid injury whilst at work. The overall service provided by PHW group was excellent and the pre and post assessments reflect this.”
