About Us.

Since 2013 Productivity Matters has been assisting in healthy, safe productive workforce creation. Productivity can mean something different to every one of our clients. We exist to help create healthy, safe, and productive workforces, however, that might be defined by our clients. We do this by listening to what your organisation needs are and customising a solution to meet those needs that focus on improving the health and ensuring the safety and wellbeing of your workforce.

Our team consists of both Productivity Matters staff and a large network of experienced Partners. Our Partners help us flex up when needed and bring a wealth of qualifications and experience across multiple sectors.

Our solutions might include OHS auditing or advisory, Ergonomics Redesign or Programme Implementation, Strategic Wellbeing Programme Development or Training. We provide customised training in WHS, Mental Wellbeing (Fitness and Mental Illness Awareness and Response), Managing Mental Health and Substance Abuse in Frontline Roles, Ergonomics Champions Training, ErgoAnalyst Training, Hazardous Manual Task, and Participative Ergonomics Training.
