Future of Work
On 12 July 2016, Phil Ruthven from IBISWorld delivered an interesting presentation at WorkCover WA on the future of work. There were nearly 30 scheme participants in attendance, including insurers, health providers, lawyers and employer representatives.
Mr. Ruthven’s presentation discussed how changing workplaces and workforces could impact on the workers’ compensation and injury management scheme in Western Australia.
Following the presentation, WorkCover WA facilitated a workshop where attendees discussed potential challenges the future of work could pose for our scheme. Many useful thoughts were gathered which will be used to inform our Agency’s approach to the changing face of work.
‘Future of work’ is one of many topics that will be covered in the upcoming WorkCover WA Return to Work Conference scheduled for 3 and 4 May 2017. For more information regarding the conference visit returntowork.workcover.wa.gov.au.
