Upon receipt of a Worker’s Injury Claim form, Silverback Pty Ltd will make contact with their insuring agent within required timeframes. If a worker is unable to perform their pre-injury duties due to injury/illness, RTW strategies will be implemented upon receipt of the certificate of capacity from a registered medical provider.

The RTW Coordinator will consult with the injured worker, the treating medical provider and occupational rehabilitation provider (with permission from the injured worker) to assist the worker to return to work on acceptable/ agreed modified or light duties wherever possible.

Silverback Pty Ltd is committed to providing support, aid, modified work environment and meaningful work for the time that the injured worker is incapacitated (or for a period required by the State Authority) and to ensure the workers can return to their pre-injury employment when they are at full capacity.

The RTW Coordinator will monitor return to work strategies and maintain regular contact between the workers and all treatment providers.
