Injury Management Policy
Ground Masters will establish and implement injury management processes for all employees and contractors who have sustained a work related illness, injury or disability.
Ground Masters will:
Establish a structured and systematic approach to workplace based injury management services for all employees through the implementation of its injury management procedures.
Develop and encourage the expectation that it is normal practice, following work related illness or injury for persons to return, as soon as practicable, to appropriate employment. This includes providing alternate duties as deemed appropriate by the medical practitioner, in consultation with the injured employee.
Establish an injury management system where the usual course of action, when appropriate, is a managed return to gainful employment with the process beginning at the earliest possible time.
As a minimum, Ground Masters will implement injury management processes which are consistent with the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981, and any Code of Practice established under that Act.
This policy shall be reviewed at regular and planned intervals.
