IPAR listed in 2013 BRW Fast 100


We are delighted to announce that IPAR has been listed in the 2013 BRW Fast 100, coming in at position 40. This is the third consecutive year that our business has made the annual list and is our highest ranking yet (following number 51 in 2011 and number 60 in 2012).

This result is made even more impressive due to the fact that only a small number of businesses have been able to make the list for three consecutive years, as it becomes harder to continue rapid growth the larger a business becomes.

David Sagar, IPAR Managing Director, believes the result is a testimony to the hard work and dedication of the IPAR team. “I really want to thank our staff for the amazing contribution they have made toward making this possible and helping to continue the ongoing success and growth of our business.”

New products join Strong4Life™ suite


IPAR is excited to announce two new modules to the Strong4Life™ injury prevention training suite — Office Ergonomics and Healthy Mind modules.

These new modules join the highly successful Manual Handling program, to offer a total approach to health and wellbeing at home and at work. The Strong4Life™ product suite now promotes a ‘healthy body, healthy mind and healthy workplace.’

Strong4Life™ Office Ergonomics

Developed by IPAR’s ergonomists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists, the Office Ergonomic program empowers participants with the knowledge, skills and tools to identify risk factors within the workplace and to apply ergonomic principles to manage and reduce these risks. Participants learn to recognise the early signs of musculoskeletal stress and how to apply simple principles and tools to stay strong, safe and healthy.

Strong4Life™ Healthy Mind

This program has been developed by our team of psychologists to provide education, guidance, skills and tools to workforce and manager-level participants in the area of mental health and wellbeing. It assists participants to recognise the early signs of mental stress, and to identify risk factors in the workplace that may cause psychological distress. Participants learn strategies to build psychological resilience and to develop effective communication strategies to have the conversation on stress.
