Workplace rehabilitation is a process for assisting injured employees during their recovery to achieve an early, safe and sustained return to meaningful and productive work.
The process and accountabilities for all employees, workplace managers/Principals and other key stakeholders are detailed in the Department of Education, Training and Employment Workplace Rehabilitation Procedure .
The Department's rehabilitation case management forms can be found at the bottom of the Workplace Rehabilitation Procedure.
The Department has a legislative obligation to provide rehabilitation to employees with an accepted WorkCover claim. Additionally, rehabilitation programs may also be provided to assist employees with non work-related injuries return to work.
Most schools and departmental workplaces have trained, accredited Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinators who are responsible for facilitating and coordinating appropriate rehabilitation services for ill and injured employees at that workplace.
In addition, every Education Queensland Region and all TAFE Institutes have qualified and professional injury management staff, who also provide consultancy, advice and coaching on rehabilitation case management.
