The Return to Work Act 2014 will commence in South Australia on 1 July 2015, replacing the existing Workers Rehabilitation and Compensation scheme. The new Act will bring about significant change to how workers compensation claims and return to work are managed for injured workers in the SA Public

The Office for the Public Sector recognises the importance of ensuring practitioners within injury management, injury prevention and human resources are adequately prepared for the impending legislative reforms, to support effective implementation and ensure agency compliance.

ASC Training & Development, utilising learning modules developed with SISA specifically for self-insured employers, will deliver a comprehensive, cost effective training program through a 2-day conference designed to provide a sound understanding of the new legislative provisions and their application within the SA Public Sector.

The conference program has been designed to ensure coverage of sector-wide Return to Work concepts, as well as industry specific issues relevant to the various practitioner groups.
