Work Well Assessments

A good work station set up will result in improved comfort and productivity in the workplace.

We can help prevent discomfort by providing a brief review of an individual work station or a more in-depth assessment for those who are experiencing discomfort.

Work Well assessments can be customised to individual or company requirements.

Please call us to discuss.

Workplace Assessment and Graduated Return To Work Program

We provide a workplace assessment of the job tasks and functional demands with the client and employer.

We work closely with each individual, their employer, health professionals and other stakeholders to provide a plan for a safe and successful return to work following an injury or illness.

Stay At Work (SAW)

We work with both the employer and the individual to ensure a gradual increase in work hours and duties based on the individual's current level of functional capability and diagnosis.

Our expert therapists can provide regular supervision and practical advice regarding work practices and self-management principles to ensure that the individual can eventually return to pre-injury job demands.
