Working together reduces the human and financial impact of workplace injuries. Effective communication and collaboration between claims managers, return to work providers, employers, employees and medical practitioners, supports injured workers to return to the workplace as safely and quickly as possible.

Although the South Australian public sector is made up of many agencies, we operate as one employer.  Your Road to Recovery and Returning to Work gives an overview of employees’ rights and responsibilities, our obligations as your employer, and the process of returning to work.

Injury Management Standards

The South Australian Public Sector Injury Management Standards (IM Standards) seek to:

  • ensure all agencies understand their obligations as Crown self-insured employers under the Return to Work Act 2014
  • promote the integration of injury prevention and management into core business.

The IM Standards apply to all South Australian Crown self-insured employers and outline requirements, policies, and guidelines for the administration of an injury management system across the public sector.
