Workers' Compensation Workshop - Engaging Doctors & Workers

Safe Work Australia data identifies the ongoing failure of Workers’ Compensation insurers to return injured workers to work. With passive/reactive claims management leading to an increase in the average time lost for serious claims by 24% between 2008/2009 and 2017/2018

With passive claims management by insurers becoming the norm, especially in Victoria and NSW, employers need to exercise as much control over the claims management and return to work process as possible.

Through an interactive workshop, attendees will gain an understanding of:

  • The impact of passive/reactive management on return to work outcomes
  • The importance of early return to work
  • Strategies to effectively engage injured workers
  • How to identify at risk claimants
  • Why treating practitioners don’t trust employers and their return to work coordinators
  • How to effectively engage with treating practitioners
  • How to dialogue with treating practitioners around ongoing incapacity
