Karen Camilleri is a Sydney-based, AHPRA registered Occupational Therapist with 30 years’ experience in workplace rehabilitation and injury prevention. Karen has worked extensively with organisations of all size, from corporate to sole traders, in both the public and private sectors. After spending many years working in an injury management role performing workplace assessments and other return to work services, Karen now focuses on delivering injury prevention services, such as ergonomics training and assessments and manual handling training. Her passion for injury prevention stems from witnessing firsthand the profound impact that work-related injuries can have on all aspects of an individual’s life as well as their workplace.

Karen has particular interest in office ergonomics and believes that many workplace injuries can be prevented by educating workers on correct sitting posture and adjustment of their chair and workstation, including home office workstations. Karen works closely with employers to minimise workers compensation claims by conducting early intervention one-on-one ergonomic assessments for workers reporting symptoms, as well as delivering group training to all employees within an organisation for a more proactive approach.

Karen enjoys developing and delivering interactive, practical and tailored training packages, specific to the needs of her clients. Her mission is to share her knowledge and skills to empower and inspire people to be healthy and injury-free at work.
