What is workplace injury rehabilitation?

A worker is protected by workers compensation insurance should an injury occur while in the workplace. Work-related injuries are not just limited to physical but also include psychological injury which can result from environmental, organisational or individual factors that lead to stress, trauma or depression.

The cost of rehabilitation is covered under the employer’s workers compensation policy. As well as providing a weekly benefit, this protection also assists the injured worker with the cost of medical and rehabilitation expenses that are needed to support a healthy and safe return to work.

It's your choice

Not all rehabilitation providers are the same. The first step towards workplace health is to make sure you engage a rehabilitation provider that you are comfortable with to help guide you through the process.


We recommend that employers engage the services of a provider who they are confident will support them, implement preventative and supportive measures and protect their business’s greatest asset– their workers.


Although workers may be referred to a rehabilitation provider at the start of a claim, it is important to know that the ultimate choice rests with the individual worker. At any stage of the claim, a worker can request to change, or choose their own provider to partner with.

Medical Providers

Medical providers play a critical role in caring for injured workers and ensuring their medical needs are carefully integrated into their rehabilitation plans. Doctors can recommend preferred rehabilitation providers to their patients who they feel will support their medical advice and a sustainable return to work plan.
