Injury management

How to prepare an Injury Management Plan

You are required to establish an Injury Management Plan (IMP) in accordance with the WorkCover Injury Management model.

Prepare a Return to Work plan

Your Return to Work plan should:

  • Describe what you will do to help your employees return to work

  • Be based on the treating doctor's recommendations and have his/her approval, and be coordinated with the IMP

  • Be developed in consultation with your employees

If a treating doctors declare your employees able to work, but not in their usual job, you must also endeavour to find them suitable duties while they recover. They could involve:

  • Elements of their usual job

  • Reduced hours

  • Different duties

  • Training

When looking for suitable duties consider:

What the doctor has said your employees are capable of doing

The age, education and skills of your employees

Where they live

The type of duties that benefit your business, keeping in mind you must not give your employees demeaning tasks.
