Return-to-Work & Suitable Duties
A Personal Injury Plan (PIP) must be developed by GIO if it is likely that the worker will be incapacitated, partially or totally, for a period of more than 7 calendar days.
As part of the RTW process, an employer must provide suitable duties after an injury has occurred, as well as take part in vocational rehabilitation for the injured worker. Please complete a Return to Work Program form or call your GIO Claims Advisor. For more details, please visit the WorkSafe ACT website.
Suitable duties are developed in consultation with the injured worker's nominated treating doctor and must consider the worker's current work capacity and medical advice.
We provide a range of monthly and online reporting tools designed to help you track your claims performance and assist you in identifying risk management strategies, including:
- Claims Financial Total (CFT) - Summarises basic claims and financial data by policy period.
- Customer Experience Report (CER) - Provides a national, high-level executive review and operational snapshot of performance to assist you in managing claims and trends.
