Accessibility and Reasonable Adjustments
The University of Melbourne aims to assist employees to remain at work or make a safe and suitable return to work at the earliest opportunity following an injury or illness.
Return to work
The University will assist injured employees to remain at work or return to work at the earliest opportunity following an injury or illness. A member of the WAIS team, the employee, the employee's supervisor and any treating practitioners, will work together to prepare a detailed return to work plan conforming to WorkSafe Victoria guidelines.
Injury support and prevention
Prevention should be the primary focus of all Health & Safety programs. Job design, work practices, rest breaks, health and fitness all relate to injury prevention.
Early Support Services
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.
