This qualification is suitable for people working in a work health and safety (WHS) role who may or may not work under supervision. They may provide leadership and guidance to others and have some limited responsibility for the output of others.
The qualification reflects the role of workers who apply a broad knowledge base and well-developed skills in a wide variety of contexts and may include coordinators, advisors and facilitators.
To complete this qualification, you are required to complete 10 units.
This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to assist with the management of workers’ compensation claims, rehabilitation and return-to-work programs.
It applies to individuals who assist with claims management, rehabilitation and return-to-work programs.
Note that the unit does not in any way address the process of treating the worker for their injury or illness, as this is the task of health and rehabilitation professionals. Instead, the unit focuses on assisting with managing claims and ensuring that the organisation supports the worker through return-to-work programs.
