A Return To Work coordinator is the key person assisting injured workers to remain at, or return to work as soon as possible after an injury. These courses will provide the RTW coordinator with the skills and information to support the successful return to work of injured workers.
In New South Wales, all category one employers (i.e. employers whose basic tariff premium exceeds $50,000 annually and employers who employ more than 20 workers) are required by legislation to employ or engage a RTW coordinator who meets the role’s training, skills and experience requirements.
In Victoria, employers with a total rateable remuneration of 2,337,710* million or more must have an RTW coordinator appointed at all times. Employers with a total rateable remuneration of less than 2,337,710* million must appoint a RTW coordinator while they have return to work obligations relating to a worker with incapacity for work. Appointed RTW Coordinators must have an appropriate level of seniority and be competent to help their employer meet their RTW obligations.
*This amount is indexed annually.
