Keeping people at work


Enable Works offers a range of specialist interventions designed to keep people at work and prevent sickness absence.


Condition Management

What is it?
Our therapists help support your employees who have long-term health conditions such as cancer, fibromyalgia or multiple sclerosis. The therapist assesses and monitors their capacity for work and provides on-going support and advice to help them remain at work.

 

How does it help?
This service helps employers to support employees who have a long-term health condition in a fair and compassionate way. Involving a therapist helps the employer understand the condition, provides the employee with practical support to remain at work and promotes effective communication between the employer and employee.

Ergonomic assessment

What is it?
An expert assessment of a work-station or working environment, the tasks undertaken and the people undertaking them, with the aim of ensuring it is set up to minimise muscular-skeletal issues. Our Occupational Therapists provide practical advice on the ergonomic risks and how they can be minimised. Display Screen Assessments are the most common form of ergonomic assessments.

 

How does it help?
Ensures that work-stations are set up to minimise any problems that would result in absences.

Physical screening

What is it?
Where a job is physically demanding we screen people to ensure they are capable of undertaking the work. An Occupational Therapist works with you to develop an understanding of the job and design and implement an appropriate and realistic screening method.

 

How does it help?
Screening ensures that only employees that are physically fully capable of undertaking the work do so, thus avoiding future absences.

Wellness Coaching

What is it?
Individual, one-to-one coaching for employees who want to improve their general health and well being. A qualified practitioner works with the individual to identify their health gaols and develop and implement a plan to achieve them

 

How does it help?
Helps individuals that may have long term health issues that are likely to lead to absences, such as smoking, poor diet and lack of exercise, to address those issues. The support of a professional makes achieving long term change for the better much more likely.
