Fitness 4 Work (Pty) ltd is an Occupational Therapy practice whose focus is to optimize employee’s performance at work while minimizing risk of injuries or illnesses. Our objective is also to gradually integrate an employee back at work after an injury or illness to prevent future sick absences.                                                  
The Occupational Therapist at this practice has qualified in 1998 at Medical University of Southern Africa (MEDUNSA), now University of Limpopo. The Therapist has been practicing as an Occupational Therapist for the past fourteen years in different settings which include:
• General Hospital treating patients with physical impairments
• Private practice treating paediatrics
• Psychiatric hospital, treating patients with mental impairments
• Insurance companies
Ten years of the experience gained as an Occupational Therapist has been in an insurance setting. The therapist worked for four leading insurance companies in South Africa and some of the positions held at these insurance companies include, Disability Assessor/Claims Assessor/Claims Consultant,Case Manager, Client Relationship Manager, Team leader & Key Accounts Manager. The Therapist has therefore gained experience in consulting with employers and assessing employees’ physical and mental abilities & limitations in order to determine whether the employee qualifies for a disability benefit. Home visits, worksite visits, reintegrating an employee back at work, absenteeism monitoring & management and training employers on disability products were also some the key roles fulfilled.
The Therapist is certified Workwell quality provider and have received intense training on Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) and Ergonomics
