We create safer workplaces in the motor trades industry.


Introducing Motor Trades CARE

We help business create value from health, safety and wellbeing outcomes, improving performance in Work Health Safety (WHS) and Return to Work (RTW).

With unique capability in the Automotive industry we help clients understand the benchmark data we have; where health, safety and wellbeing is headed and what necessary steps they need to take to rethink this for their business.


Integrated industry network

MTC brings together the entire eco system – business leaders, employees and the Motor Traders’ Association of NSW. This unique and collaborative approach enables business to think holistically about their workplace environment.

An industry first

For the first time we are now able to offer business the ability to overlay data sets from employee, workplace, and industry sources. This provides leaders with new intelligence, perspective, and analysis on health, safety and wellbeing trends affecting their business at a level not previously possible.


Finally, there’s a better way

As an Australian first, this new approach to safety and wellbeing finally gives the Motor Trades Industry the tools to truly quantify the value of  wellbeing and safety which is essential to business success. 

Because what’s good for employee wellbeing is good for business. 


As part of this new approach, icare has decided to partner with specific industry associations to leverage existing relationships within industry groupings to maximise the chance of significant improvement in the shortest possible time.

The primary employer association in the motor trades industry group in NSW is the Motor Traders’ Association of NSW whose participation in this initiative significantly enhances the probability of the success of the industry alliance.
