Webinar - Work and Health in the Age of COVID-19

Webinar – Work and Health in the Age of COVID-19

Workplaces across Australia and the world have been impacted by COVID-19. Many people have had to quickly shift to working remotely. Others in essential services remained at work following strict protocols to ensure everyone’s safety. And a large segment of the workforce have experienced a reduction in their employment or have been stood down from their position.

Experts from mlcoa, IPAR and Cogent Thinking have come together to present a free webinar – Work and Health in the Age of COVID-19. The webinar will explore how the global pandemic has affected our health and wellbeing, whether we are fit to return to work as we knew it, or have we and our workplaces changed for the foreseeable future.

This interactive panel discussion will be presented by Dr Kevin O’Daly, Psychiatrist from mlcoa, with guest speakers Josephine Piccolo, Occupational Psychologist from IPAR, and Alistair Jackson, Customer Experience Specialist from Cogent Thinking. These experts will provide their insights on COVID-19’s impact on individuals and the workplace, plus share strategies on how to look after yourselves, and support your teams and the cases you are managing through these unprecedented times.

There will be the opportunity to ask questions throughout the session, or you can submit a query beforehand via the webinar registration page. We look forward to you joining us.

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.
