If you’re employed with a disability, a workplace assessment can help identify what you need to make your job easier
APM is a member of the National Panel of Assessors and we deliver an independent workplace assessment to find out if you or your employer needs some help.
Depending on your needs, this may include ongoing support to help carry out your job tasks, or new tools, equipment or technology to help you work.
Once you have found a job through a Disability Employment Services provider, there are three types of support programs you may be assessed for:
- Ongoing support – such as one one one assistance to learn new tasks
- Supported wage system – making sure suitable pay structures are in place for you and your role
- Workplace modifications – identifying whether you need specific modifications, tools or equipment to do your job
These assessments can only be done by an organisation that did not help you find your job through a Disability Employment Service program.
If you are a participant in APM’s Disability Employment Services, another registered provider will assess you at work.
If you found employment with another Disability Employment Services provider, you may be referred to APM for the workplace assessment.
If you have any questions about your workplace assessment, please call us on 1800 276 276.
