Objectives

Effective injury management is a co-ordinated process to help workers to recover from injury in the shortest appropriate timeframe. The goal is for injured workers to return to their pre-injury state as early as possible. In this course we develop understanding of injury management principles which can be used to underpin effective policies, procedures and resourcing.

This course is ideal for employees at supervisory and management level, and essential for all staff involved in the claims and injury management process. Employers who are in the ACC Partnership Programme or Workplace Safety Management Practices will also benefit through better audit results.
