In this edition: monthly data report available, video shows how to recover at work, and have your say: review of workplace rehabilitation provider framework.

Monthly data report available

The June 2018 edition of the Workers compensation monthly report is now available on the SIRA website.

The report includes information about reported claims, claims by body locations, claim types, return to work rates, claim payments, claim payment types and insurance affordability.

SIRA is producing the monthly reports to improve stakeholders’ access to information and enable innovation and services that may improve outcomes for workers and employers.

The report is accompanied by data tables and explanatory information.

Video shows how to recover at work

SIRA has released a new video to show how people can benefit from recovering at work after injury.

The video tells the story of Skye, a police psychologist, who was injured in a car crash while travelling for work, and successfully returned to work with the support of her employer and colleagues.

Skye was recognised as an outstanding example of return to work and was a finalist at last year’s SafeWork NSW Return to Work Awards.

Have your say: Review of workplace rehabilitation provider framework

The Heads of Workers’ Compensation Authorities (HWCA) is seeking feedback as part of its review of the Nationally consistent approval framework for workplace rehabilitation providers.

Comments and submissions can be sent to the HWCA via email: hwca@comcare.gov.au before 17 August 2018.
