Lifeworks Health Services provides vocational services to those injured workers who are unable to return to their pre injury employer as a result of their workplace injuries. Our vocational programs are unique in that our team work with Employment Placement Specialists who are highly experienced in job seeking training and with networking and reverse- marketing for employment placement.

We assist injured workers to gain knowledge, understand what vocational retraining options are available to them and how they either gain new skills or use their current skills to seek new employment.

LHS consultants utilise their vast knowledge of workplace rehabilitation experiences and skills to identify barriers (both psychosocial and biomedical) and provide strategies to overcome them in a cost-effective and definitive timeframe.

Lifeworks offers either one-on-one job preparation in person, or we can engage via our new blended online learning program – JobWorks.

Our unique team of Rehabilitation Counsellors, Employment Placement Officers and Registered Psychologists work together to assist injured workers through this difficult process by offering a variety of services.
