There are 10 administrative forms used in the impairment assessment process.
Form AMS 1 is to be used by workers, employers or employers’ insurers – the remaining forms are to be completed only by an approved medical specialist.
These forms incorporate the legislative requirements. If you have any questions regarding the use of the forms or the impairment assessment systems, please contact WorkCover WA’s Advice and Assistance on 1300 794 744.Requirement for worker to attend
