If one of your team has an injury, illness or disability, we can help keep them in work

Our Work Assist program provides support to employers and employees through assessments, training, modifications, equipment, job redesign as well as access to allied health services.
 
Work Assist is funded by the Australian Government and is provided at no cost to your business.

Disability workplace assessments to support your team

If you’re not sure how to make changes to support an employee, our assessments can help

As a member of the Australian Government’s National Panel of Assessors, APM provides thorough, accurate assessments to determine support needs for people with disability in the workplace.

We provide assessments for three types of support:

Ongoing Support assessments to enable a person with disability to maintain employment in your current job.

Employment Assistance Fund to assess your workplace and your employee’s role to see if work related modifications, tools or equipment are needed.

Supported Wage System for people who are not able to work at the same productivity levels as their co-workers due to the effects of an injury or disability.

If you have a team member worried about losing their job as a result of an injury, illness or disability, contact us today to see how we can help.
