Rehabilitation Return to Work Coordination in Queensland
An employee’s return to work following injury or illness can be a delicate process that needs to be carefully managed.
A Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinator (RRTWC) undertakes important functions to ensure workplace safety following an injury, specific to Queensland scheme requirements.
Recovery Partners offer a complete RTW Coordination service for Queensland businesses wanting to manage this process efficiently and with sensitivity to the needs of their employees.
Do employers need a Return to Work Coordinator in Queensland?
In Queensland, an employer must have a workplace rehabilitation policy and an appointed Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinator (RRTWC) based in Queensland.
The RRTWC must be ‘appropriately qualified’ to carry out the role, ensuring they have the knowledge and skills to assist in managing rehabilitation and successful return to work outcomes. Employers with multiple workplaces across the state can appoint the same RRTWC to manage each workplace.
