ISCRR is a joint initiative of three organisations and our governance structure reflects this. We make available to our partners Australia’s leading expertise in compensation health.
WorkSafe Victoria (WorkSafe) is a statutory authority of the State Government of Victoria. Its mission is to “actively work with the community to deliver outstanding workplace safety and return to work, together with insurance protection”. WorkSafe delivers on this mission through a number of targeted activities including: striving to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities, providing benefits to injured workers and assisting them to return to work, providing reasonable priced workplace injury insurance for employers, managing the Victorian workers’ compensation scheme and providing an emergency response service that operates 24 hours a day across Victoria. WorkSafe has a commitment to evidence-based decision making and has funded a range of research activities in prevention, recovery and return to work through the ISCRR collaboration and other partnerships.
The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) is a Victorian Government-owned organisation set up to pay for treatment and benefits for people injured in transport accidents, promote road safety and improve Victoria’s trauma system. The TAC is a ‘no-fault’ scheme and is committed to delivering benefits to people injured in transport accidents in a caring, efficient and responsible way. Working closely with Victoria Police, the Department of Justice and VicRoads, the TAC develops campaigns to increase awareness of road safety issues, change behaviour and reduce the incidence of road trauma. The TAC undertakes a support a range of research activities to improve outcomes for their clients and have funded a significant portfolio of health, disability and compensation research through the ISCRR collaboration.
Monash University is one of Australia’s most respected academic institutions with a commitment to education, world-leading research and international engagement. Monash is home to Australia’s leading expertise in injury prevention, compensation, recovery from injury, living with serious injury and returning to work and these specialties have been further strengthened through the ISCRR collaboration.
