WorkCover WA hosts its boldest and biggest Conference yet!
Yesterday we proudly hosted the WorkCover WA 2022 Conference to ‘reflect on the past and focus on the future’ as we celebrated 40 years of WorkCover WA.
Over 450 delegates from a range of workers’ compensation and injury management organisations were in attendance as The Hon. Bill Johnston MLA, Minister for Industrial Relations officially opened the event on behalf of the agency. Karen Tighe was an engaging MC as she facilitated the event proceedings throughout the day.
Presented by Conference sponsors including Allianz, CGU, WorkFocus Australia and GIO, delegates participated in concurrent sessions that discussed the impact of psychological claims in the workplace and the effect on workers’ compensation as well as how digital led solutions make a difference to the claims process.
Further master classes presented by QBE and GIO highlighted how healthcare practices and return to work outcomes in workers compensation have changed and adapted over the years.
Additionally, delegates enjoyed hearing thought-provoking stories from keynote speakers whilst panel members discussed contemporary issues surrounding the workers compensation landscape.
Throughout the day the marketplace exhibition allowed delegates to hold discussions with key players in the workers’ compensation and injury management industry.
CEO Chris White completed what was a fantastic event program by reflecting on the past 40 years of WorkCover WA and highlighted the contribution the agency has made to the Western Australian scheme. He gave an update on the current state of the scheme and outlined WorkCover WA’s strategic priorities for the next few years.
