Performance Highlights Two full day forums addressing the entire work injury rehabilitation process, were held in Darwin and Alice Springs. Expert guest presenters focussed on instituting an OH&S risk management system, managing the return to work of injured workers, and legal processes within the Work Health Act. The forums were successful in providing agency representatives with practical OH&S and injury management tools. A risk management tool was developed to identify potentially complex claims. This intervention tool, which identifies key risk factors at the outset of a claim, has enabled the development of specific claims management strategies. This has resulted in a reduction in both the settlement time and cost of claims. The graph shows total employee remuneration and the cost of new claims as a % of employee remuneration over each of the last four years. Factors contributing to this downtrend include: the reduced severity of some claims; a program of assertive early intervention; the provision of contemporary claims and injury management practices and enhanced, collaborative claims management arrangements between DCIS and its client agencies. 850 900 950 1000 1050 20 00 /01 20 01 /02 20 02 /03 20 03 /04 R en um er at io n 0 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 0.5 C la im c os ts a s a % o f re nu m er at io n Total employee remuneration Cost of new claims as a % of employee remuneration
