3. Workers’ compensation and return to work
The workers’ compensation module within eduSafe Plus is going live in early 2023. This will enable schools to complete all related processes online saving time and paperwork.
For many people, being at work isn't just a job; it's also about being part of a team or achieving a sense of satisfaction through the work that they do. Being away from work due to injury or a work-related illness can be disruptive and even distressing.
The department is committed to safely helping injured employees get back to work. There is a mutual obligation between an employee and their manager to discuss business continuity and return to work planning immediately after an injury. This can provide peace of mind that a plan is in place.
