AT Services for Employers

AT is about supporting employees at work, preventing the development of work-related injury such as Repetitive Strain Injury, and promoting good practices in a wide range of work settings.

Assistive Technology is a tool, not just for new employees with disabilities, but for all employees who wish to maximise their potential at work. AT is a resource for employers and employees who wish to prevent the development of work-related injuries, and for employees who acquire a disability during their working life. It is also a powerful tool for potential employees with disabilities who have yet to secure employment.

We offer a range of services for employers and managers, including:

Employer Seminars

Short seminars delivered on site in corporate partners’ locations, targeting information on AT in an employment setting. These seminars focus on prevention of work related injury, retention of staff who may have already acquired an injury/disability and solutions to accommodate prospective employees with a disability who enter employment. Includes information on funding and legislation.

Employee training

Half day workshops, frequently delivered to public sector employee/union groups who wish to understand the benefits of AT and how they can provide a mentoring role to colleagues who require AT at work. Includes information on funding and legislation.

Workplace Assessment Service

Research shows that 60% of adults would benefit from adjusting their computer or work station in some way. If left unresolved, issues can lead to employees struggling to fulfill the demands of their job and/or experiencing lengthy periods of sick leave, at a cost to both employer and employee. Ergonomic and Assistive Technology assessments are important as they form an integral part of a good occupational health and safety management plan.
