Competence (skills and motivation)

Build safety and recovery and RTW capability in your business by improving skills and motivation within your organisation.

  • Support workers to be proactive and engaged in all aspects of work health and safety (WHS). Engaged workers apply procedures and practices more effectively, resulting in reduced risk and control of hazards before they cause harm.
  • Promote and engage in WHS programs and initiatives to encourage learning and improved safety capability.
  • Share your vision for a supportive workplace where injured workers are front and centre of their recovery and return to work.
  • Take a person-centred approach to recovery and return to work by providing support that recognises an injured worker’s individual needs. Collaborate with the injured worker and ask them about their goals, concerns and possible solutions.
