Physiotherapy intervention saves Asda sites over £97,473 collectively
For over 12 years Connect Health have been providing physiotherapy services to Asda, offering early access to physiotherapy to reduce sickness absence. The Occupational Health Physiotherapist onsite at Asda has regular presence in the workplace, ensuring a full and accurate understanding of the environment and potential risks that could cause or further aggravate any MSDs. This enables the onsite physiotherapist to carry out correct and accurate workplace assessments to all Asda colleagues, which has helped to reduce musculoskeletal injuries and promoted self-management.
Connect Health’s onsite physiotherapy service was effectively & efficiently implemented and resulted in a 40% reduction in absence from work due to musculoskeletal disorders, within the first 4 months of service.

For the past 7 years, Connect Health have been working with Pladis, Carlisle to reduce their sickness absence and prevent accidents from happening within the workplace.
Using case studies of Pladis (Formerly United Biscuits) employees, a number of cases were highlighted where absence had been reduced or prevented due to the physiotherapy service provided by Connect.
In this world of cutbacks and downsizing, providing employees with an occupational health physiotherapy service, free at the point of use, might appear to be an unaffordable luxury. At Sterling Pharma Solutions we find the exact opposite to be the case. The service provided by Connect Health brings a real net positive benefit to our workforce and our operations.

Effective prevention and management of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) within the workplace
With 23,000 employees, 2 Sisters Food Group is one of the UK’s largest food manufacturers. They are on a mission to deliver great quality and innovative meal ideas each and every day.
However, it is a challenging environment in which to work, with a high volume of outputs from raw materials to products delivered. With a wide range of repetitive activities, sustained postures and manual handling tasks, the risk of musculoskeletal disorders can be high, potentially causing employees to be placed on restricted duties or even cause periods of sickness absence.
