Why You Should Attend

[Virtual+ Training Course] Workers’ Compensation

Have your employees come out of the pandemic unscathed or is there lingering psychological stress that might affect their productivity and lead to cases of repeated claims? Is your workplace in need of recalibrating measures? Is your organisation prepared for workers’ compensation claims related to COVID-19 exposure?

The boundaries between work and home became blurred and now with millions of Australians working from home on what is likely to be a long-term basis, it seems that the scope for injuries to be causally linked to employment has become significantly greater, particularly for those employees who do not follow strict or traditional hours of work and work late nights or on weekends to complete work. Many employers have had to make a wide range of organisational adjustments. These adjustments, depending on which state you are in, could be subject to various workers’ compensation related reporting changes, as well as potentially impact your organisation’s premium costs and experience modification factors.

Interpreting grey areas, keeping up with changing regulatory issues and managing compensation plans all require a root cause analysis.

You could be missing out on new methodologies and tools which could be more cost effective for your business. Our trainer and these encapsulated modules will help you be prepare, identify ways to slash costs and boost the effectiveness of your return-to-‘normal’ programmes.

Our Distinguished Trainer:

Robert Aurbach CEO and Principal Consultant

Uncommon Approach, Inc.

With 20 years of experience as a lawyer and workers’ compensation system designer, Robert has an exceptional history of key contributions in multiple fields, at the state and national level, achieved through the ability to identify and bridge knowledge and practice gaps through synthesis of available information. He has developed, facilitated and analysed a unique series of personal injury stakeholder engagement meetings across Australia, resulting in the employer being recognised as a centre of excellence and resulting in retention of core business contracts.

From an international perspective, Robert has assisted other governmental entities in reviewing and revising their workers’ compensation systems. Clients include the Navajo Nation, US Virgin Islands, states of New Mexico, Delaware, Tennessee, California, and the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation system. His additional experiences include testimony before the US Congress on the OSHA ergonomics initiative and representation of the United States in NAFTA talks on cross-border workers’ compensation matters. In Australia, Robert organised and ran a unique series of stakeholder engagement sessions in every Australian capital; gathering and analysing the input of a very diverse range of stakeholders. The resulting national report has been published by Deakin University.
