Has an incident or injury occurred at your school recently that required medical attention or resulted in lost time?
Do you require advice or assistance with managing a new WorkSafe claim or the return to work process of one of your employees?
The Department has commenced a WorkSafe Claims Advisory Service to assist principals with the management of complex WorkSafe claims.
This service is designed to improve return to work outcomes for employees by ensuring that principals can access timely injury management and return to work advice from the Department’s WorkSafe claims advisory consultant at the time the employee suffers the work related illness or injury.
The Advisory Service can provide principals with prompt WorkSafe claims and return to work management guidance, ‘just in time training’ and support for the management of the more complex ‘time lost’ WorkCover claims.
Belinda Owen is the Department’s WorkSafe Claims Advisory Consultant. Belinda has a broad experience in the areas of injury management, rehabilitation and WorkSafe Claims management.
Belinda Owen can be contacted directly on 9637 2441 or 0439 751 132.
