Home Ergonomics Support and Training to Work Safely from Home

As more and more people are working from home across Australia, employers are seeking easily accessible home ergonomics support and training for their employees on how to create a safe, comfortable and appropriate work environment.

Whether a team member needs a one-on-one home ergonomic assessment, or a whole team of people need virtual home ergonomics training, IPAR is ready to assist.

One-on-one Home Ergonomic Assessment

The home ergonomic assessment is a 30-minute phone or Skype consultation between the team member and one of IPAR’s Allied Health Professionals. Working through a thorough home ergonomic checklist, the consultation assesses and addresses risks factors in the home environment and provides practical advice on work station set up, accessories, tasks and duties.

Strong4Life™ Virtual Home Ergonomic Training

The virtual home ergonomics training is conducted by one of IPAR’s Strong4Life™ trainers via video conferencing technology. Available to up to 10 team members at a time, the training covers ergonomic strategies and principles that participants can implement in their own home, for a comfortable set up with their own equipment.

To learn more or to make a booking, please link in with Aaron Bowes or email rehab@ipar.com.au. Or to find the IPAR office located closest to you, please refer to our office locator.

NSW Drought Relief Community Sessions

POSTPONED: NSW Drought Relief Community Sessions

Tamworth: In line with the most recent Government advice to avoid all non-essential contact, we have made the tough decision to postpone a number of our rural NSW drought relief mental health community support sessions until the end of April. After which time, we will review the situation and provide further feedback on future dates.

Sessions postponed include Moree, Coonabarabran, Tamworth and Gunnedah.

Following community feedback, we have however decided to proceed with the Bingara community session as planned, this coming Monday 23rd March.

A decision on the remaining two sessions at Inverell and Tenterfield will be made closer to the time.

For further information, please contact Melissa Butler via mbutler@ipar.com.au or 0434 524 870.
