Return to work services

Share |

WorkCover Queensland is committed to working with medical and allied health providers to achieve quality rehabilitation and return to work outcomes.

Rehabilitation is an important part of the workers' compensation program. The Workers' Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003 (the Act) places great emphasis on a safe return to work. Under the Act, the worker and employer must take every reasonable step to participate in rehabilitation and return to work programs.

Types of return to work services we provide include:

  • worksite assessments
  • functional capacity evaluations
  • vocational counselling
  • transferable skills assessments
  • vocational assessments
  • job placement services
  • suitable duties plan
  • host placement with a host employer
  • assistance with sourcing alternative employment or short retraining courses.

WorkCover has established a return to work services panel to provide return to work services to our customers. The panel is made up of independent allied health providers.

They work with WorkCover, injured workers, employers and treating medical and allied health providers to facilitate the injured workers' return to work. 

WorkCover has a tender arrangement and openings for tenders will be advertised on our Medical and allied health section.
