We also understand how important it is to NSW employers to get their people back to work quickly and safely when an injury does occur.
icare’s Injury Management Program provides important information about how icare and its partners will work with employers to achieve this. It reflects icare’s new claims model, outlining the support available and what steps will be taken to help injured workers achieve a safe recovery at work, or manage their ongoing care and support if they’re not able to return to work in the short or long term. This information will assist you with developing a return to work program suitable for your business.
