Stakeholder feedback is now closed.

22 March 2022: Public submissions opened

The WorkCover Tasmania Board is reviewing the Tasmanian accreditation framework for Workplace Rehabilitation Providers (WRPs). As part of this review, the Board is seeking stakeholder feedback between 22 March until 22 April 2022.

The aim of the framework is to ensure WRPs operating within the Tasmanian workers compensation scheme are following best practice, and therefore ultimately providing the best possible service for injured workers accessing workplace rehabilitation services in Tasmania.

An Issues Paper has been prepared to allow stakeholders the opportunity to provide comment and further information to the Board. When providing feedback stakeholders must address the terms of reference outlined in the Issues Paper.
