Injury management program

The University of Wollongong is committed to the prevention of injury and illness to workers or any other people whose health and safety could be put at risk by the work carried out by the University. On those occasions when injuries do occur it is equally committed to assisting in the process of providing a safe, timely and durable return to work of injured workers.

The Injury Management Program outlines the University's commitment to the injury management process ensuring the best outcomes for workers within the framework set by the NSW workers compensation legislation.

The Return to Work Program outlines the framework for ensuring early return to work after a workplace injury. To see how the injury management process works please view the Injury Management Flow Chart.
