QLD WorkCover Intensive

Overview

This year's WorkCover intensive will prepare you to face the future of workers’ compensation claims, covering proposed coming to the Workers’ Compensation and Rehabilitation Act and WorkCover Queensland’s return to work program.

A review of psychological injury case law will assist you to advocate for your clients. You will then learn about the construction industry and why injuries are occurring in that industry.

To wrap up the afternoon, you will hear best practice tips on dealing with limitation applications, costs in WCRA/PIPA claims and effectively pursuing claims for your clients.

Registration commences from 1:45pm and there will be light snacks served on arrival, just in case you missed lunch. So be sure to arrive early.

This half-day intensive seminar will sell-out quickly, so register early to avoid disappointment.
