Workcover and rehabilitation
The University of Southern Queensland recognises that there are substantial benefits to be gained from rehabilitation principles and practices and is committed to implementing them at this workplace.
USQ employees may claim compensation if they are injured within the Workcover definition of "a work related injury" where employment was a "significant contributing factor".
Experience has shown that workplace rehabilitation assists the healing process and helps restore the worker's normal function sooner.
Individuals should familiarise themselves with Workcover information and rehabilitation procedures in the event of an injury at work.
