  • The National Institute of Disability Management and Research (NIDMAR),
    The National Institute of Disability Management and Research (NIDMAR), founded in 1994, is an internationally recognized organization committed to reducing the human, social and economic costs of disability. As an education, training and research organization, NIDMAR's primary focus is the implementation of workplace-based reintegration programs which international research has proven is the most effective way of restoring and maintaining workers' abilities, while reducing the costs of disability for workers, employers, government and insurance carriers. The National Institute's success is the result of collaborative initiatives undertaken by leaders in labour, business, government, education, insurance and rehabilitation. NIDMAR is supported by a broad-based Board of Directors and International Council, with senior representatives from Canada, Australia, Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands, and the United States. As a long-term labour-management and multi-party commitment to disability management in the workplace, NIDMAR is supported by an endowment fund created through contributions from the federal and provincial governments, major private corporations and public organizations.

  • Workplace Safety Group
    Employers, employees and the insurance industry launched a new voluntary code which sets out a new way for employers and employees to work together to prevent workplace accidents and resolve industry issues directly. The Workplace Safety Code establishes new guidelines on prevention of workplace accidents; on intervention with medical care for the injured worker if, in spite of best efforts, an accident does happen; and on follow-up support to help the worker recover and return to the workplace as soon as possible. This initiative involves all the relevant organisations operating in the workplace, from the two major employers' groups, IBEC (Irish Business and Employers Confederation), CIF (Construction Industry Federation), as well as ICTU (Irish Congress of Trade Unions), and the IIF (Irish Insurance Federation). The Code is supported by State bodies including the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment, the Health and Safety Authority, The PIAB and FAS.
