We understand that our clients want to see a return on their investment and our SmartMove Programs are designed to deliver this. To showcase just how effective our SmartMove Programs are, we’ve decided to share the below story from one our clients, who was experiencing a high rate of musculoskeletal injuries in their workforce, as a consequence of performing hazardous manual tasks.
Gladstone Regional Council SmartMove Program 2013-14
KINNECT have worked closely with Gladstone Regional Council since 2012, having been formally engaged to deliver injury prevention, management and health services. To date, KINNECT have delivered manual handling training, containing both theoretical and practical components to greater than 1000 Gladstone Regional Council employees.
During our time partnering with Gladstone Regional Council, KINNECT have demonstrated the capacity to provide manual handling training for all of Gladstone Regional Council operational sites and divisions (twenty-five in total).
By tailoring the training Gladstone Regional Council ensured a return on investment, as the education provided made sense to and was easily implemented by all personnel, resulting in a reduction in soft tissue musculoskeletal injuries and the costs associated with the management of these conditions.
