National Institute for Disability Management and Rehabilitation (NIDMAR)
Disability Management/Workplace Accessibility tools and resources
HRPA partners with the National Institute of Disability Management and Research (NIDMAR) and Pacific Coast University for Workplace Health Sciences (PCU-WHS) to provide members with workplace disability management assessment tools and educational resources to help establish effective disability management programs in Ontario workplaces.
Disability Management Self Assessment (DMSA)
NIDMAR’s DMSA assessment tool allows organizations to undertake a basic self-assessment of their current return to work and disability management efforts and obtain a report that provides an overview of their current performance. The report also identifies what the best practice is, thus allowing the organization to determine which areas of their program require review and/or improvement.
