Injury at Work

  1. GET MEDICAL TREATMENT

The most important thing you need to do is to get is appropriate medical treatment from your doctor.

  1. MAKE SURE YOUR INJURY IS RECORDED
You must notify your employer of your injury. You can notify them by letter, and/or by filling out the Register of Injuries in your workplace, which your employer is legally required to have. The Register can be filled in by you, or by someone on your behalf. Either way, make sure it is done within 30 days of you being injured. If you don't notify your employer of your injury you may not be entitled to compensation.
  1. GET A MEDICAL CERTIFICATE

If you believe you may need to make a claim, or if you can't do your normal job, you need to get a proper WorkSafe/Comcare medical certificate. Contact COW Union to get more detailed information about the specific types of medical certificate's you need, how long they last and when you need to get them. The certificate needs to describe your injury, any anticipated time off work and possible alternative duties if required.dent to the police.

  1. COMPLETE A CLAIM FORM
If you need medical treatment or time off work as a result of your injury, you will need to complete a Worker's Injury claim form. Especially in cases of serious or enduring injury, Contact COWU to get more information on:
  1. medical costs
  2. suing for damages.
