A new online tool is making it easier for small business to learn about their workers compensation obligations and find out what to do when a worker is injured.
The State Insurance Regulatory Authority’s Small Business Assist tool has step-by-step instructions to help time-poor employers understand the requirements after taking out a workers compensation policy.
It explains how to record and report an injury and help someone recover and return to work, and the employer’s role in the claims and recovery process.
There’s also information about the support available, how to maintain a safe workplace, and links to other resources.
