workplace injury management
As an integral part of overall Safety Management, effective Workers Compensation can significantly reduce your Workers Compensation premiums for years to come. Each state in Australia is governed by a Workers Compensation Act and a Workers Compensation Regulation. Depending on the state in which you conduct your business, depends on the responsibilities you have, for example reporting timeframes.
When there is an injured worker in your work force we will work with you, your injured worker and liaise with stakeholders to effect an early return to work.
This in turn, reduces your workers compensation premium and allows all workers to be returned to their normal duties in a timely manner
Legislation states we as business owners must provide suitable duties for any worker who is injured at your premise. Legislation states you must have a Rehabilitation policy and this is included in your A1 Safety Matters Safety Management System.
