Workers compensation provides protection to workers and their employers in the event of a work related injury or disease. When a worker is injured at work, the employer, injured worker, insurer and treatment provider have responsibilities to ensure that the injured worker is provided with benefits and assistance to recover and return to safe, durable work.
Every Victorian, whether they are a worker or an employer, has a responsibility to maintain a safe and healthy workplace.
