Early Intervention Programs (EIP) are an essential strategy for businesses with muskulo-skeletal injury risk, whose management are committed to supporting their staff, and in doing so reducing lost time injuries and compensation premiums. An ideal Early Intervention Program provides support to the worker at the earliest possible opportunity, and is not dependent in any way upon the workers intention to lodge a compensation claim.
Effective Early Intervention Programs involve the following elements:
‘General duty of care’ and ‘general duties’ are terms used to refer to the obligations that Health and Safety legislation places upon employers. Under these ‘general duties’ employers must provide: a workplace where workers are not exposed to hazards as far as practicable; a safe system of work; and information, instruction, training and supervision to workers so they can work in a safe manner.
Early Intervention Programs are a common and effective strategy used by businesses, as part of their safe systems of work to manage hazards that may contribute to musculoskeletal injury. They are a significant management action in meeting general duty of care obligations.
