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
