Health and Welfare Workers: South Australian Workers’ Compensation Claims, 2004-2013

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

    Abstract

    The nature of work in South Australia is progressively moving from physical tasks to work that involves more mental and emotional endeavours. Concomitant with national changes, health and welfare services have become one of the fastest growing sectors of the South Australian economy. However, to date, there has been little exploration of the impact of these changes on health and welfare workers’ compensation claims in South Australia.

    South Australian workers’ compensation data were examined to identify:
    • The number and rate of health and welfare workers’ compensation claims made over the 10 year period 2004 to 2013
    • Workers’ compensation claimant and claim characteristics
    • Patterns of claims by health and welfare workers.
