BEING a category finalist in Resilience in Business is a great accolade for IOH Injury & Occupational Health, especially in these testing times from late 2019 to this year with drought, bush fires and the pandemic.
With the impacts being so dramatic, the new resilience category at this year's awards is so important.
"IOH offers essential services in preventing, treating and rehabilitating workplace injuries," operations manager Corey Smith of IOH said. "COVID-19 has impacted everyone's lives, even with this downturn in business activity IOH has seen an uptake in demand for our psychological and rehabilitation services.
"IOH has a strong focus on mental health, offering Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) to look after the mental health of individuals and workplaces."
Delivery of these services has not been so straight forward over the last eight months.
"Our business has had to rapidly adapt, we have expedited technologies such as telehealth and video-conferencing to allow us to continue delivering our services remotely and safely to the at risk aged care and disability sectors."
COVID screening, enhanced infection control, splitting shifts to future proof their business and a dynamic and effective "work from home" model demonstrate IOH's resilience in business.
"IOH prides itself on not having stood down any staff or reduced their work hours, providing them with stability in uncertain times and allowing them to deliver essential services to the community."
IOH was established in 1984 in response to the need for a service to help control the spiralling human and financial cost of workplace injuries. Over the years IOH has broadened its mission to provide much needed healthcare through the NDIS and aged care. IOH achieves its success by co-ordinating prevention, treatment and rehabilitation.
IOH provides services to Sydney, Illawarra, Central Coast, Southern Highlands, Shoalhaven, Far South Coast, Greater Western Sydney and the Hunter.
"These are tough times we are all facing, though we may have to maintain our physical distance, it's important we retain our connectedness and look out for one another in our community."
