This year, the Comcare Work Health and Safety Awards were combined with the Seacare Awards. Last night, at the Melbourne Town Hall, organisations and individuals operating within or providing a service for the Comcare and Seacare schemes were recognised and awarded for their achievements in workplace health and safety, rehabilitation and return to work.
During a recent review, the Seacare Authority noticed a number of cases where employers made reconsideration decisions without first seeking the assistance of a Comcare officer.
The Seacare Authority agreed—at its August meeting—to update the employer determination report forms. The report forms now include details of the voyage and vessel where the incident occurred to assist parties to determine jurisdiction at the outset of a claim.
