About the program

The Injury Prevention and Management program (IPaM) works with Queensland employers to develop improved injury prevention and injury management systems.

The IPaM program works with employers to review their current injury prevention and management processes and develop a business plan for improving identified areas.

The program differs from a traditional 'hazards and risks' approach to one which considers workplace systems and organisational culture. The program provides employers with advice and tools to improve the following areas:

  • managing work health and safety
  • workplace hazard identification
  • injury management and return to work outcomes
  • workplace safety culture and climate.
