"Understanding Fitness For Duties For Non Work Related Medical Conditions"
Navigating the maze of lifestyle diseases, obesity, diabetes, mental health and chronic illness is increasingly challenging for employers. Considerations of health risk, legal and HR issues and workplace responsibilities add to the maze.
Dr Ryan will step us through-setting the scene of how Fitness for Duty Assessments fit into managing employee performance and productivity issues.
Dr Ryan will detail what a Fitness for Duty assessment includes, what is helpful information in the referral and what you can hope to achieve by having one.

Time: 10.30am. The session will conclude by 12.00pm
Where: FSC, Level 24, 44 Market Street, Sydney

Personality In The Workplace And In Worker's Compensation
Dr Chow stretched our self-concepts a little bit more last week as he presented on this interesting topic in Parramatta. He explored how our personality is formed, what influences it and how it can change under stress (such as in a worker’s compensation claim!). He outlined personality traits which can become disorders if they get out of control and how to best manage these traits in both employees and employer.
We were challenged to consider how many diagnosed psychiatric conditions may have a large contribution from personality which may be amenable to change. Dr Chow reflected on how the medical and insurance systems may better serve those with Mental Health claims in order to decrease the suffering and disability of claimants.
As the first talk in Parramatta, we are aiming to offer more educational events to our clients outside Sydney CBD. Let us know if you would like us to consider planning an event near you!
