Human Resource Services 42 The graph shows workers compensation costs as a percentage of employee remuneration, together with the actual costs of claims for five years. This third year of a strategy to reduce the number of long term workers compensation claims and unfunded liabilities has contributed to a reduction in costs compared with the previous year from 1.4% to 1.2% remuneration. Moreover, unfunded liability has been reduced from $52.1M to $50.2M. The actual cost of compensation for the period remained consistent despite the continued high cost of lump sum payments. Audits No audits were undertaken on this product during the year. Initiatives 2004/05 ABRM, a workers compensation management system, was piloted in the Department of Justice, with the objective of determining its suitability for use within the wider public sector. At the completion of the 12-month trial period, an external authority evaluated the program. The recommendations are still under consideration. A series of seminars will be provided that focus on reducing the incidence of psychological injury in the workplace. The seminars will assist client agencies to develop workplace cultures that minimise psychological injury, identify potential psychological injury claims and provide specific management tools. An information resource tool will be developed and provided to improve the skills and capacity of client agencies to manage work health claims. A service contract will be developed and implemented between DCIS and Territory Insurance Office that defines the roles and responsibilities of both organisations and ensures efficient and cost effective service delivery to client agencies. 0 5 10 15 20 19 99 /00 20 00 /01 20 01 /02 20 02 /03 20 03 /04 C os t o f c la im s $M 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 C la im s as a % o f r em un er at io n Cost of Claims Settlement % of Salary
