This course is the official Workcover NSW Introduction to Return to Work Coordination training course. This is the WorkCover NSW approved course for people planning to work as a return to work coordinator in NSW.
The Return to Work (RTW) Coordinator training course is held over 2 days and will provide your Return to Work Coordinator with the skills they need to perform their role effectively.
A return to work coordinator is a worker nominated by an employer (or a contractor engaged specifically for the role), whose principal purpose is to assist injured workers to return to work in a safe and durable manner.
Under workers compensation law, Category 1 employers (ie. employers whose basic tariff premium exceeds $50,000, as well as self insurers, and employers who are insured by a specialised insurer and who employ more than 20 workers) must have a return to work coordinator. The Return to Work Coordinator must hold a WorkCover certificate certifying attendance at the WorkCover accredited two-day course ‘Introduction to return to work coordination'.
This is a WorkCover NSW course designed to train a person as a Return to Work Coordinator according to the requirements of the NSW Workers Compensation legislation.
