Our Story

Our Story

Since 2002 we have been reducing injury costs for Australia’s largest businesses, SME’s and organisations.  Aurenda specialises in injury prevention, management and training services.  We cut costs and eradicate the hidden pitfalls and complications of workplace injury.

Our focus is the employer.  We understand their business and the specific challenges they face and we provide tailored solutions that deliver immediate results.

We are the Employer’s Advocate

Injury management is complicated, yet working with us is not.  We provide the necessary expertise to manage the entire injury management life cycle.  That is, unlike other providers, we oversee all activities from the time of injury to manage and close cases, including workers’ compensation claims, public liability or independent non work related injuries.
