Free workplace assessments and modifications
If you require any modifications to the workplace or equipment, financial help may be available to your employer to pay for the costs of the modifications and adjustments.
Workplace assessments can help to identify and remove barriers in your workplace. Professional workplace assessors can provide expert advice on any workplace adjustments, equipment and modifications that may be needed to allow you to do your job.
As part of the Employment Assistance Fund, JobAccess Advisers are able to assess the need for a workplace assessment for eligible employees with disability. They can arrange a free assessment on your behalf.
The Employment Assistance Fund helps people with disability by providing financial assistance to purchase a range of work related modifications and services. Assistance is available for people who are about to start a job or who are currently working, and those who require assistance to find and prepare for work.
