Worksite assessment

Your claims agent may arrange for a worksite assessment to be undertaken by a medical expert at your workplace to ensure a safe and suitable return to work occurs. The medical expert will look to identify suitable duties and assess the physical and/or psychological demands of the duties, as well as provide recommendations of appropriate workplace modifications to accommodate your current capacity for work.

After visiting the worksite the medical expert will provide a report outlining the details of the assessment to you and your claims agent, and will look to speak with your treating doctor to obtain agreement on the return to work arrangements.

If your doctor agrees to the recommendations, then you’re able to safely return to work.
