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 SafeWork certificate certifying attendance at the SafeWork accredited two-day course ‘Introduction to return to work coordination'.
