Workplace Injury Management
Occupational therapists use specialised assessments to determine the functional requirements of various jobs, and people’s capacity to return to work.
Occupational therapists can assist with:
- Designing and coordinating graded return to work programs
- Educating clients and employers in safe work practices
- Modifying the work environment to suit the needs of individuals so as to prevent or minimise injuries and ill-health
- Occupational therapists can work with people who have physical or mental health needs in the workplace
