Proactive Injury Management (PIM)

The Momentum OCSA Proactive Injury Management (PIM) system is a highly effective and professional approach to on and off duty injury management. It limits loss of work time due to workplace injuries which may further result in reduction of Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Disease (COID) assessment fees.

What our PIM team is good at

Our team has the qualifications, competencies, and experience to:

  • Deliver appropriate medical case management and follow up in order to adequately address each case.
  • Maintain close communication with employees, first line supervisors and line management, regarding cases and their status.
  • Evaluate a comprehensive assessment of work related physical injuries.
  • Provide telephonic first aid advice to prevent time loss incidents where possible.
  • Assess workers’ ability to continue performing normal and customary duties.
  • Coach supervisors on the ‘stay-at-work’ process when it is physically safe to do so.
  • Operate in compliance with standard national medical protocols.
  • Understand and apply injury prevention techniques for musculo-skeletal disorders.
  • Function within South African medical and record keeping guidelines.
  • Operate a medical assistance line eight hours a day, five days a week.

Measures of success

  • Alignment of our PIM process with your company’s incident and injury procedure.
  • The point where there is buy-in from your company’s management and where they promote the process from top down.
  • Buy-in of Unions and other stakeholders.
  • Training of line managers, supervisors and first aiders on the PIM process.
  • Injury cases are followed up automatically to ensure the paper trail is followed.

PIM enables supervisors and first aiders to access immediate professional support and advice. It is our trusted, full-circle way of tracking injuries, and facilitating effective case management.
