If you wish to lodge a claim for Worker’s Compensation, you must ensure that you have completed the following:
You may wish to contact the WHS Injury Prevention and Management Advisor to discuss the process.
When all documentation has been completed, please forward to the WHS Injury Prevention and Management Advisor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Once your WorkCover claim has been accepted, any subsequent invoices or medical certificates that are required to be sent to WorkCover Queensland can be forwarded to email@example.com.
Should you require time off work for your injury or illness (this needs to be stated on the Workers Compensation medical certificate – otherwise leave will be debited from your sick accrual), you will need to follow the HR Online process to access your leave accruals (these accruals will be reimbursed to you on acceptance of your WorkCover claim).
The WHS Injury Prevention and Management Advisor will, in coordination with you and your treating medical practitioner/allied health professional and supervisor/manager, develop a suitable duties/return to work plan. The suitable duties/return to work plan will be reviewed throughout the duration of your injury to ensure that you have a safe return to full duties.
If required, appropriate support strategies may be provided by external providers in consultation with the WHS Injury Prevention and Management Advisor.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Health, Safety and Environment Unit for further information or assistance:
