Cairns Steel Fabricators recognises that there are substantial benefits to be gained from rehabilitation principles and practices and is committed to implementing them at this workplace.  We recognise that the Workers’ Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003 and the Workers' Compensation and Rehabilitation Regulation 2003 provide the legislative support for workplace rehabilitation activities. 

Experience has shown that workplace rehabilitation assists the healing process and helps restore the worker’s normal function sooner. Workplace rehabilitation includes early provision of timely and adequate services, including suitable duties programs, and aims to: - 

  • maintain injured or ill workers at work or
  • ensure the worker’s earliest possible return to work or
  • maximise the worker’s independent functioning and
  • provide for durable employment.

 This policy has been developed as a joint worker-management agreement.


Cairns Steel Fabricators is committed to:-

  •  Providing a safe and healthy work environment, but in the event of an injury or an illness, making sure workplace rehabilitation is started as soon as possible in accordance with medical advice.
  •  Ensuring our rehabilitation and return to work coordinator consults with treating Doctors to seek their advice on suitable duties, to ensure appropriate suitable duties are made available to injured or ill workers to facilitate their safe and early return to work. These duties must be consistent with the current medical certificate and will be time limited.
  •  Respecting the confidential nature of medical and rehabilitation information and ensuring there will be both verbal and written confidentiality.
  • Ensuring all workers are aware that, in the event of injury or illness, they will be consulted to ensure a structured and safe return to work that will not disadvantage them.
  • Complying with legislative obligations with respect to the standard for rehabilitation.
  • Adopting a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation as required.
  •  Reviewing this policy and procedures at least every three years to ensure it continues to meet legislative requirements and the needs of all parties.

Workplace rehabilitation procedures have been developed to support this policy.  The procedures define key terms, describe key roles and outline steps in the return to work process.  A copy of the procedure can be viewed by phoning our Cairns office.


Our rehabilitation and return to work coordinator is Paul Walford.
