Principles of Practice for Workplace Rehabilitation Providers
The Heads of Workers Compensation Authorities (HWCA) has endorsed new Principles of Practice for Workplace Rehabilitation Providers which are available on the HWCA website: http://www.hwca.org.au/nationally-consistent-approval-framework-workplace-rehabilitation-providers/
The Principles of Practice were developed following an extensive consultation process and are intended to guide workplace rehabilitation providers in the delivery of services to workers with a compensable injury.
WorkCover WA is working on a revised approval framework that integrates the Principles of Practice for approvals and renewals from 1 July 2020 when the current framework expires.
Until then the current HWCA approval framework applies.
WorkCover WA will inform stakeholders about the revised approval framework early in 2020.
