Following disappointing previous experiences, we tend to get asked “Does workplace rehabilitation actually work?” Like most things when managed professionally, rehab will accelerate return to work (RTW) and help minimise people, financial and business impacts. Workplace rehabilitation providers are allied health professionals that are accredited to deliver workplace rehabilitation services to help injured workers return to work in a safe and sustainable manner. Unfortunately not all rehab providers and their consultants are created equally. We are very proud that HEALTH ABILITY has a 100% RTW Rate and actively contributing to sustainable RTW of our client and broker’s clients injured workers.

8+ million Australians go to work each day with many in manual or sedentary workplaces. Mounting evidence supports onsite physio as a strategy to minimise workplace injuries. With an average of 1/3 of an individual’s life spent at work, it is becoming vital for businesses to adopt measures to prevent, manage and educate employees regarding their health. Using a physio in the workplace is a preventative strategy for businesses wanting to minimise costs, reduce workers compensation claims and more.
The main focus of the workers compensation is to enable injured workers to stay at work or return to work following a work related injury. Workplace rehabilitation plays an important role by involving timely intervention with appropriate and adequate service based needs to assist injured workers back into the workplace. We are pleased to say our specialist rehab business HEALTH ABILITY has a 100% return to work rate and can support businesses.
We are very pleased to announce our HEALTH ABILITY specialist business is now an accredited NSW Workplace Rehabilitation Provider. Our new General Manager Emily Taylor is actively running our specialist rehabilitation & health services.
The recent NSW legislation changes also mean workers compensation claim related rehab services do not increase the cost of these claims and importantly no longer impact subsequent premiums – effectively making rehab services, an important catalyst for accelerating the return to work of injured employees, free for NSW businesses.
