If you have been injured at work you are entitled to assistance from a workplace rehabilitation provider.

IPAR is an independent occupational rehabilitation provider. We provide Return to Work Services for individuals who have been injured at work.

Usually you will be referred to us by your insurance company but you may also be referred by your employer or doctor. You also may be able to choose your occupational rehabilitation provider. To assist you in making the right choice, we are happy for you to talk to one of our consultants so that you can better understand who we are and how we will assist you, as well as to answer any questions you may have.

Once we receive a referral to assist in your return to work, we will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time to meet either at your workplace or at one of our offices. Our extensive office network will ensure that we have a location near to you.

You will be seen by one of our qualified consultants who are Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Exercise Physiologists, Registered Nurses, Psychologists or Rehabilitation Counsellors. Our consultant will seek to understand your situation and your injury or illness, and will work with you and other stakeholders to achieve a suitable and safe return to work for you.
