All employers play a critical role in the prevention and management of workplace injuries. All are subject to workers compensation legislation pertaining to injury prevention and management if, and when injuries do occur. Strict penalties are in place for employers who do not adhere to the legislative guidelines, particularly if the breach results in a notifiable incident or injury.


Workers compensation rules and procedures are inherently complex and can be overwhelming for employers trying to run a business and do what they are supposed to do. This web site has been set up to assist small to medium size employers navigate the system they find themselves in. We offer information on how the system works, on legal aspects of the system when dealing with a workers compensation claim, as well as advise on who to contact and where to go to get more information or relevant support.


Our Information files offer information that is pitched at a level for each of the target audiences.
