WorkCover

Here for you

WorkCover is the state government agency that administers work health and safety and workers’ compensation laws. When a workplace incident occurs, the person in control of the workplace must notify WorkCover immediately.

As an employee:

  • If you suffered a work-related injury, you must notify your employer and speak to a doctor immediately for advise and a WorkCover certificate.
  • If you lose income or require treatment as a result of your injury, you may make a claim.
  • You may need to pay for your first WorkCover consultation, but once your WorkCover claim has been processed, this will be reimbursed.
  • When returning to work, your doctor will provide you with a certificate of capacity which outlines the duties you can or cannot perform for your recovery. This certificate must be updated by your doctor every 28 days.
