Companies are being urged to consider the effects of Australia’s ageing workforce on their business, as the ageing process will increasingly come to bear on employees’ injury-related claims.

    "Assessment In A Timely Manner"... at the moment it is far from timely.

    Meaning that the time to report the injury/incident, Management engagement and support, rtw coordinator activation, worker to gp presentation and gp and or coordinator engagement of a specialist are time variables that could do with much greater controls.

    In attending to these issues there is a need for greater awareness, attention and ultimately mindfulness of what "capability" means in response to workforce ageing and injury.

    To achieve this greater orientation is needed to equip not only workers but service line managers with the right knowledge.

    Certainly the listed strategies in the article form part of the solution matrix.

    But, if we are truly committed to downward pressure on cost, then risk containment means embracing a multi-generational workplace. One which encourages participation across the lifespan.

    To be successful in this initiative all points to great worker and line supervisor skills, knowledge and know how.. not just medical advancement.
