Injury management programs

Injury management programs

An injury management program is an organisation's process for effectively managing workplace injuries, in order to achieve the best results for timely, safe and durable return to work for injured workers.

An injury management program should encourage a shared commitment to recovery and return to work through a co-ordinated and integrated approach to injury management.

Employers and insurers must have an approved injury management program in place. Injury management co-ordinators are also involved in developing and implementing injury management programs.

The following guides will help employers, licensed and self insurers who have or would like to develop and implement their own injury management program (note: the Act prevails where inconsistencies between the guide and the Act exist).
