Anyone of us could experience an injury, illness or disability at some time in our working lives.
But if the life of a valuable employee suddenly changed, and they could no longer perform at their best, would you know how to support them?
We do, and by working with us your whole team will benefit.
If an injury, illness or disability impacts the performance of your employee, our workplace modification assessments will determine if additional tools, equipment or alterations to your workplace, will make their job easier.
This may include specialist tools to help with tasks such as moving objects, bending or lifting or making your workplace more flexible and accessible for people with disabilities.
Height adjustments to desks or workstations, or equipment and technology for people with a visual or hearing impairment are also common modifications.
Our qualified and experienced assessors identify workplace barriers, then research and recommend suitable actions. They also liaise with suppliers to provide you with an expected cost of the modifications.
If your employee has come to you through a Disability Employment Services program they may be eligible for funded supports. In this case the workplace assessment could be conducted under the National Panel of Assessors.
Contact us today to see if your employee could benefit from a workplace modification assessment.
