We want to reduce the number of work related pain syndrome sufferers worldwide. This will be achieved, at least in part, through this innovative online diagnostic and ergonomic assessment process. Firstly, it enables management to quantify and qualify the physical state of their employees. Secondly, it provides specific observations and conclusions to give positive advice to employers and employees about the prevention and cure of their individual problems. In addition there is advice on dealing with employee health action.
There are four main priorities:
1. The welfare of your employees.
2. The minimising of your legal position by listening to employees and reacting positively to their concerns.
3. Objective assessment of individual employees symptoms and work practices.
4. To consider the cost of supplying our Workplace Wellness assessments versus the costs of litigation and preventable loss of productivity and greater absenteeism.
CEO's are aware of the Health and Safety assessments that their companies undertake each year. All too often these assessments come to generalised conclusions about trailing wires, heating, lighting and inadequate workstations, but they are not very likely to achieve a specific diagnosis of an individual employees' pain syndrome.
Implementing our system for your company will add greatly to your ability to change things for the better..
Your Drilldown page takes all of the data from each employees anonymised submission and turns it into frequency as defined by severity and position of the pain pattern. From this, you the employer, can see the overall picture of sufferers and their pain patterns.
For example, a pain pattern may be in the employee's top right forearm. This may co-exist with tension headaches on the same side. You will be able to see these patterns for yourself.
The Drilldown also takes you to each individual employee's anonymised report. From this level you can see their particular pain pattern plus their history, ergonomic factors and stress levels.
All too often cross-communication is lost and distorted between co-workers and also their 'bosses'. The report contains specific observations by your employees with regard to management style, bullying, poor quality interactions.
First of all you can consider it to be an adjunct to your existing health monitoring scheme. This normally includes trainers, gym vouchers, on-site massage and ergonomic assessments often conducted by Physiotherapists.
Secondly, the reports will enable all of the professionals involved in your health monitoring scheme to see much more clearly each employees problem areas. All they need is the username of the employee to see the reports. No employees names (unless specified to do so by the employee), employees email addresses or other information is kept by our system. Therefore complete employee anonymity can be ensured.
Third, you can make much more informed decisions about ergonomics, sick time, loss of production and stress factors. You will be armed with much more data than would be provided by your existing health-monitoring scheme.
Fourth, the impact assessment. When an employee repeats their report a second time, they, and you will be able to see the improvement in their condition as a result of your actions.
Each employee will benefit greatly by virtue of the process itself. It is very specific. This increases the employee's awareness of the areas involved. It can lead them to realise that their jaw tension and their type of mouse usage are linked, thereby gaining more control over their problem. Most symptom patterns can be treated adequately by massage when they are due to tension patterns and the reports show the practitioner precisely where to focus their therapeutic efforts.
They also benefit by 'venting their spleen' about work communications in the knowledge that their feedback will be seen, noted and most importantly, completely anonymous.
