The University of Melbourne has developed a new initiative called Early Support Services, to support employees with work-related injuries sustained out of or in the course of their employment.
The primary objective of this service is to assist injured employees to receive early medical treatments, thus facilitating their recovery from the work-related injuries.
This service aims to assist eligible employees who have sustained a minor work-related injury resulting in the employee seeking medical attention and/or services. Assistance may include reimbursements for reasonable medical and like expenses associated with the injury.
