Who is a workplace rehabilitation consultant?

A workplace rehabilitation consultant is a tertiary qualified allied health professional who specialises in the complex needs of workers following an injury or illness. They assist workers to recover, return to work or re-engage in life.

It is important to know that workplace rehabilitation consultants are independent of the insurer or employer. They usually work in collaboration with your trusted treating team, including your doctors, psychologist and allied health professionals involved in your care.

A workplace rehabilitation consultant understands the complexity of the regulatory environment and the workplace, and they know how a person’s family and broader social networks can be impacted by an injury, illness or workplace event.
