WISE Occupational Rehabilitation services
We offer a comprehensive range of Occupational Rehabilitation services including:
Injury management and return to work (RTW) services
Our injury management and return to work services include:
- workplace-based intervention to keep the focus on returning to work
- comprehensive RTW plans and rehabilitation programs and monitoring
- thorough analysis of pre-injury duties via a workplace assessment
- collaboration with all people including treating medical practitioners.
Activities of daily living (ADL) assessments
Our Occupational Therapists assess people in their home and determine what they need to improve function, independence and safety at home and in the community. Equipment for the home may be recommended or household services introduced.
We are experienced in assessing workstation ergonomics to prevent injury or minimise ongoing problems. We recommend modified or adaptive office equipment to make work activities more comfortable and sustainable, resulting in increased productivity. We can offer free trials of ergonomic equipment prior to purchase. We can also conduct home office workstation assessments and provide strategies to stay safe while travelling for work and working remotely.
Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) and pre-employment assessments (South Australia)
Our physiotherapists assess a person’s physical capacity to complete a job safely and comfortably via a pre-employment assessment or a more detailed Functional Capacity Evaluation. A pre-employment assessment for employers is invaluable in matching the right person for the right job to ensure tenure is safe and sustainable.
WISE Employment has been assisting job seekers with disability or injury since 1992. Our expert team can help employees find alternative work within an organisation or with a new employer. Vocational assessments and counselling can be conducted to ensure appropriate career goals.
Our team of psychologists and rehabilitation counsellors deliver one-to-one counselling to a range of people, including employers, as well as both jobactive and Disability Employment Services (DES) job seekers. We work with people to overcome barriers to employment or help them return to work.
