Early intervention in the workers’ compensation process

Safe Work Australia has recently announced the release of an independent research report, commissioned by Monash University, with a focus on early intervention within workers’ compensation procedures. Branded under the key theme ‘Early Intervention in the Workers’ Compensation Process,’ it consolidates essential viewpoints, propelling the importance of efficient WHS management systems like the Bluesafe WHS Management System.

This comprehensive report delves into varying approaches adopted towards early intervention in workers’ compensation settings across Australia. Additionally, it identifies specific strategies that demonstrate efficiency in curtailing recovery durations and facilitating improved return-to-work outcomes for workers who have endured injuries at their workplace.

The methodology adopted during this independent study incorporated feedback from several experts. Consultations were conducted with a wide spectrum of stakeholders actively involved in developing various workers’ compensation policies, return to work agendas, along with SWMS such as Bluesafe SWMS. This process was further enriched with an environmental scan and a synopsis of significant national and international literature — adding depth to the findings.

The insights gleaned from this report will serve as guiding principles for initiatives set to take place under the auspices of the National Return to Work Strategy spanning 2020–2030.
