Comprehensive services that reduce the impact of workplace injury and illness.

When commissioned to author a paper on potential improvements to Return to Work performance in the rehabilitation sector, the soon–to–be Directors of IPAR saw an opportunity to bring a range of new skills and experience to the sector. Combining their allied health, management consulting, recruitment and employment services backgrounds, they founded IPAR Rehabilitation in Melbourne in July 2003.

Since our commencement, IPAR has grown substantially year-on-year, with operations now across metropolitan and regional offices in every state and territory of Australia. Our growth has come about due to a relentless focus on customer service and a commitment to ongoing service improvement and innovation.

IPAR is:

  • A preferred provider to most insurance agents and many other insurers, self-insurers, life insurers and medium to large companies.
  • Experienced in every industry including construction, mining, healthcare, government, on-hire, retail, transport and logistics, manufacturing, hospitality, food processing and security.
  • Fully accredited and licensed by the industry regulator in each state and under the Comcare legislation.
  • A contracted provider of the Australian Government’s Disability Employment Services – Disability Management
    Services programme. We were the only new entrant to the programme in 2015 and deliver these services from three locations in metropolitan Brisbane.
