Work Assist

Is a condition affecting your work?
Work Assist is here to help you.

If an injury, disability or health condition is making it difficult for you to complete your tasks, then you may be able to seek help from Work Assist.

Work Assist provides support to help eligible employees stay in their job if they have an injury, disability or health problem, including mental health conditions.

This program keeps businesses moving by ensuring trained, productive staff can continue to make an important contribution.

  • A workplace assessment to determine if any changes are needed
