Work progresses on Workers Compensation Self Insurance project

5 May 2016

The WHS Governance Structure consultation closed on 31 March 2016. A total of 74 pieces of feedback were received and analysis is underway including collation into themes. Final clarification of feedback will take place with specific areas in the next few weeks. A final diagram will be presented to the Project Steering Committee at the next meeting. Final documentation will be presented to University Council in July.  

Comcare completed their Rehabilitation Management System audit in April. There has been significant improvement since the last audit in 2012. The audit report will be presented to the University this week with the opportunity to respond. Once the final report is complete, a corrective action plan will be developed for any outstanding non-conformances.

The University is investigating Claims Management options. There is a specific set of requirements around Claims Management for self-insurers. An options paper is being developed and will be presented to the Project Steering Committee.
