Melbourne Occupational Health Services is not your average injury management provider.
We built our practice on personalised service, open communication, and an emphasis on early return to work for employees. We don’t just treat injured workers, we report back to the employer delegate, so you always know the health status of your staff.
We understand what is important to you.
Workplace injuries are treated with priority. We have a well-equipped emergency treatment room with facilities to perform minor surgery including management of uncomplicated fractures and wounds. If we are unable to handle the injury, we rely on a close working relationship with our local public and private hospitals to facilitate prompt treatment.
We do too. Early return to work benefits the employee as much as the employer. With our extensive workcover experience we can help you prevent long-term problem claims. Employing evidence-based, cost-effective investigations and treatment avoids wasting time and resources.
We take special care to not confuse, antagonise, or frighten employees. Educating employees in the best practices of injury management (in particular, dispelling myths and misconceptions regarding injury) promotes a cooperative attitude and lessens negative attitudes and the psychological impact of injury which can often be a barrier to returning to normal duties.
With MOHS, you and your employee are in good hands. All our doctors are vocationally registered General Practitioners, and many have advanced training and experience in Occupational Health. Our clinical team are at the forefront of employee health and injury management, backed by our Occupational Health Liaison officers and admin staff to provide a streamlined and responsive service to your business.
We always liaise with the employee and the employer to facilitate a common understanding of treatment and management. This avoids confusion and frustration that lead to delays. We always work with employees and employers to find suitable alternate duties and we NEVER deem an employee unsuitable for duties without discussion with the employer.
Most injuries are managed by a single doctor. However, there are times when an injured worker may need to see a different doctor. Continuity of care is paramount to MOHS, and every effort is made to prevent disruption or delay in management or communication when this happens. Employers can always request review of a case by another doctor, if necessary.
Worksite visits are encouraged and valued as we aim to understand the nature of your workplace. This is an opportunity that is cherished by our doctors, as they are able to see workers in action and assess the level of physical demand of various jobs available at the workplace. Gaining a better understanding of duties available allow our doctors to write meaningful and considered certificates of capacity eliminating confusion and frustration. It is also an opportunity for both parties to ask questions, put faces to names, and establish a more personal working relationship.
