The course is designed to provide an introduction to the management of injured workers in Queensland according to the Workers’ Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003 QLD & Regulation 2014 QLD.
It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure their Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinator is appropriately qualified and competent to carry out their role as per S.226 of the Act and that the RRTWC understands the principles of managing injured workers with reference to the legislation and best practice injury management principles and is able to fulfil the Functions of a RRTWC as per Reg 114 of the Regulation.
OHSA is the No. 1 provider of this course in Qld. We have trained over 5,000 RRTW Co-ordinators over the past 10 years.
