Work Cover Injuries and Reports

Being a business owner, you are responsible for the welfare and safety of your employees and others at the workplace. If the employee has been injured, the employer must be informed of all details. So that the job is not hampered and necessary modifications can be done.

In such situations, Workcover Injuries and Reports can help to keep the employer and employee on the same page. It will cover the reported type of the injury, the reason and the trigger, relevant clinical findings, diagnosis and other causative factors of injury, and the projected time frame for the employee’s resume of normal employment.

Work Cover Injuries and Reports will include the necessary limits regarding the injury received and response to the treatment that is urgently required, such as physiotherapy, medicine, radiography, and specialist evaluation. This will help reduce the amount of time wasted and inform the employer of the steps that must be taken to support employees in continuing at work.

Work Cover Injuries and Reports may include the following:

  • The nature of the damage, the cause, and the trigger as reported.
  • Examined clinical findings
  • Diagnosis and other possible causes
  • Management expected and required time to return to regular employment.
  • any anomalies in the presentation that may necessitate non-medical intervention, such as workplace discontent, other non-work contributing variables, or exaggeration.
Work Cover Injuries and Reports may include the following:

All employers are required to record worker injuries for which their workers' compensation insurer may claim workers' compensation. Injuries must be reported regardless of whether the worker files a workers' compensation claim, even if you disagree that the damage is compensable.
The first step in filing a workers' compensation claim is informing your employer of your injuries. Prompt reporting frequently results in a better claim for workers' compensation benefits and a faster medical recovery. However, each state has standards for providing proper notice to your employer. For example, you may jeopardize your right to receive workers' compensation benefits if you do not follow the proper procedure.

The following incidents must be reported:

  • a skull, spine, or pelvic fracture
  • a fracture of any bone in the arm (excluding the wrists or hands) or leg (other than a bone in the ankle or foot)
  • a forearm, a hand, a finger, a thumb joint, a leg, a foot, a toe, or a toe joint
  • any injury other than those listed above that, in the opinion of a medical practitioner, is likely to prevent the employee from returning to work within 10 days after the date of the injury;
  •  Infectious infections (tuberculosis, hepatitis virus, Legionnaires' disease obtained by occupational exposure)
  •  Zoonoses in the workplace (Q fever, anthrax, leptospiroses and brucellosis were contracted during unsafe exposure with infected animals at work).
