Our highly evidence-based system involves a work hardening programme, with psychological support. Initially, there is a detailed assessment and measurements taken to ascertain the level of function of the employee. Goals are then set by the employee and the assessor for them to achieve over the next eight weeks. The employees are then invited to work with a motivational fitness instructor to maximise his/her improvement.
Performing these programs on-site is a lot more cost-effective than external programs at regional centres in terms of cost and in lost working hours. Large numbers of employees required on the programme is not necessarily a barrier to the programme commencing.
