The Return to Work Act 2014 (SA) section 26 requires every employer in the state to have an appointed return to work coordinator (RTWC) if that employer has 30 or more workers. The RTWC must be adequately trained, having attended the RTWC certificate training course. The role of the RTWC is to facilitate an injured worker's return to work and recovery. CHG are authorised by RTWSA to deliver the RTWC certificate training course to give your employee the skills to be an effective RTWC.
Additional stipulations of the Return to Work Act 2014 (SA) are that:
- the RTWC position must not be vacant for more than 3 months
- the RTWC must be based in South Australia
RTWSA regularly audit employers to ensure their compliance.
It is possible to have multiple employees trained as RTWC's in an organisation to cover any vacancies. Employers can also nominate an external provider to be their RTWC to meet this legislative requirement.
