How Physical Therapy Can Facilitate Workplace Wellness

The average person spends eight (8) hours or more in the workplace. Occupational hazards and risks are prevalent in a work environment, especially one with prolonged periods of sitting.

A healthy and productive work environment is a benefit for the employee and the employer. From an early emphasis on safety and injury prevention, the focus for employers is gradually shifting towards fitness and longevity.

Risks to the health and well-being of the workforce include:

  • Accidents
  • Injuries
  • Musculoskeletal pain and discomfort related to poor ergonomics at the workstation
  • Weight gain and obesity (a result of sedentary jobs)
  • Heart and lung related diseases
Change Starts at the Top

Workplace wellness programs are driven by the leadership of the company. General guidelines to promote workplace wellness include:

Step 1: Speak with your supervisor, or someone in human resources to request a wellness program.

Step 2: Obtain approval and support of key decision makers.

Step 3: Acknowledge and build on any existing wellness initiatives (if they exist).

Step 4: Conduct a survey among staff members to identify health and wellness preferences

Step 5: Work with qualified professionals to develop a plan.

Step 6: Promote and implement the plan.

Step 7: Implement a monitoring and evaluation tool to assess how the program is working.

Step 8: Analyze the findings of the assessment to modify the program as needed to ensure it remains relevant and engaging.

Physical activity programs for the workplace can include:

  • Group exercise
  • Competitive sports
  • Recreational sports

Individualized fitness prescription can include:

  • Weight loss programs
  • Cardio-respiratory (heart healthy) programs
  • Nutrition and healthy eating plans
