Geelong’s CBD skyline has soared to new heights with WorkSafe’s new headquarters reaching its final height of 65 metres.
WorkSafe will soon begin a two-stage relocation process to Geelong, with the first group of staff making the move from its Melbourne headquarters in late 2016.
Injured workers and their employers will be able to access guidance material around compensation more conveniently thanks to WorkSafe Victoria’s new claims app.
A psychiatrist who told the VWA his patient was sicker than she was in order to prolong her stay in hospital so he could receive further payments was last week sentenced to six months in prison (wholly suspended for nine months) and ordered to pay almost $50,000 in fines and restitution.
The outstanding work of individuals and teams from WorkSafe Victoria’s insurance agents was recognised at the Injury Support and Service Awards in Melbourne last night.
WorkSafe Victoria has today announced the panel of Agents to manage its premium and claims from 1 July 2011.
Victoria’s workers compensation average insurance premium rate will remain at 1.338% of employers’ remuneration for the next financial year.
